To be eligible for a Medicare Supplement plan, you must have Medicare Parts A and B through Original Medicare.
Original Medicare Members
If you have Original Medicare, you can enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan anytime in New York State.
Medicare Advantage Members
If you are currently in a Medicare Advantage Plan you will only be able to leave at certain times of the year.
You cannot have both a Medicare Supplement Plan and a Medicare Advantage plan at the same time.
Call us for more information.
Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage
Note: If you had prescription drug coverage with your Medicare Advantage plan, and you are considering a Medicare Supplement plan, you will need to sign up for a Prescription Drug plan (Part D) to maintain your drug coverage going forward.
Failing to do so could lead to penalties in the future. Ask our Medicare Sales Advisors for more information.
