You can make changes to your Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug coverage when certain events happen in your life, like if you move or you lose other insurance coverage. These chances to make changes are called Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs). Rules about when you can make changes and the type of changes you can make are different for each SEP.
Some examples of times you may be entitled to an SEP:
You've relocated to a new permanent residence.
You've lost your current coverage, through no fault of your own.
You have a chance to enroll in employer, VA, or Tri-Care coverage.
Your plan changes it's contract with Medicare.
You're newly eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid.
Your Special Needs Plan (SNP) is no longer required.
There are several other reasons that you may qualify for an SEP and if you feel like you've experienced some qualifying life event, please reach out to see if you're eligible.
