Important Deadlines

Are there deadlines I should know about? Absolutely. So get to know these Medicare dates when signing up for a Medicare Advantage Plan. It’s one of the most important things you can do.

October 15 – December 7

The Enrollment period for you to change plans. Most people over 65 will only be able to choose a plan between October 15 and December 7. So it’s important to do your homework thoroughly.

January 1 – February 14

You may dis-enroll from a plan and return to Original Medicare. In most situations you cannot enroll in another plan. 

February 15 – October 14 

In general, you can’t switch coverage. This time period is often referred to as the "lock-in" period. There are some exceptions. For example, you may enroll during this time if you are new to an area or you just turned 65.
