Tips for Enrolling in Medicare Advantage Online

medicare-advantage-enrollment-tips

Enrolling in a Medicare Advantage Plan online is a major step. Making a good choice starts with being prepared. Here are our top tips for making a smooth transition.

Establish your priorities

Before enrolling in a plan, you want to ensure it’s a good fit for your physical and financial needs. We recommend making a list of your most-used medical services, your physicians, and your prescription drugs. These are all major factors in the suitability of a plan, and having these items handy will make your comparison and enrollment process easier.

Compare plans

To find the best-fit plan for your situation, you’ll probably want to compare Medicare Advantage Plans online from several different insurance providers. If you’re researching and enrolling through a single provider’s website, you may not get a full picture of your options.

Provider-agnostic options, like our Medicare Online Enrollment Portal, give you the chance to compare a variety of plans in your area, so you can enroll in a plan with the confidence that you’ve selected a best-fit option.

Ask for Help

If you have questions throughout your online research or enrollment process, you can always get help. Our Medicare Advocates are standing by to answer your questions. Just call 1-800-991-4407 / TTY 711, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. You’ll be glad you asked questions before enrolling to avoid being unhappy with a plan.

Don’t pay extra

There are two costs related to Medicare Advantage plans:

  • Your Part B premium, which you continue to pay
  • The Medicare Advantage premium, if any (some are $0)

You should not be charged an enrollment fee by the website you use to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan. Charging such a fee for enrollment is illegal.

Stay secure

You’ll be entering personal information during your enrollment process, such as your Social Security Number. You may wish to enroll only on a secure site, which begins with “https” and has a lock icon on most browsers.

Enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan Online

Find, compare, and enroll in Medicare Advantage plans online with our Medicare Online Enrollment Portal. The portal is a secure website that allows you to browse Medicare Advantage plans in your specific area, directly compare the costs and benefits of those plans, and easily enroll in the plan of your choice.
