Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period Available for a Limited Time for Changes

Although the Annual Enrollment Period has ended for Medicare Advantage, there are still opportunities to assist those clients.

From January 1 – March 31, 2019, beneficiaries, who are already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, are allowed a one-time opportunity to switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another Medicare Advantage plan (including changing insurance carriers).*

If you’re interested in more information, please contact our Broker Team by visiting  excellusformedicare.com/broker


* Beneficiaries can make only one election during the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period (OEP). Changes made during this time take effect the first of the month following the month you enroll. For example, if you switch to a new Medicare Advantage Plan in February, your new coverage will begin March 1. Neither health plans nor brokers can knowingly target or send unsolicited marketing materials to any Medicare Advantage/Medicare Advantage PD enrollee during OEP.
