The Open Enrollment Period
The Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) for Medicare starts on OCTOBER 15 and ends on DECEMBER 07 of every year. But, what is the Annual Enrollment Period or AEP? During this timeframe anyone with Medicare can join, switch or drop a Medicare Advantage or Prescription Drug plan! As you already know, Medicare does not allow its beneficiaries to make any changes during any other time of the year. This is why it is important to keep in mind that this might be your only chance to make changes to your Health Insurance benefits for the following year. Any changes you make during AEP will be effective from January 1st to December 31st of the following year.
The Medicare plans make changes every year, and during AEP is the time that you have the opportunity to revise you benefits and make sure the plan you are enrolled in, is still appropriate for your health needs, as they might have change during this year as well.
