5 Ways to Make Medicare Advantage Online Enrollment Super Easy

medicare-advantage-online-enrollment-simplified

Enrolling in Medicare Advantage online is a great way to simplify the process, but only if you’re prepared. If you don’t have all the details you need handy, you’ll wind up having to come back several times to finish your enrollment. We have a few tips for how to make your Medicare Advantage online enrollment quick and painless.

  1. Make a List of Your Doctors
  2. Can you name—and correctly spell—all of your doctors? Probably not, and that can slow down your Medicare Advantage online enrollment process, so we recommend making a list before you start comparing plans.

    Most Medicare Advantage Plans have a network of care providers with whom the plan has negotiated certain pricing. You’ll want to check the network for your providers before enrolling in a plan. If your physicians aren’t included in the network of a plan that’s a great fit for you, you may choose to change providers. You’ll want to make an informed choice, though, not enroll in a plan only to discover your favorite doctor isn’t in their network.

  3. Make a List of Your Prescriptions
  4. Spelling all your doctors’ names is certainly a challenge, but it pales in comparison to listing the names of some prescription drugs, plus your dosages!

    Medicare Advantage Plans with prescription drug coverage (sometimes called MA-PD Plans) will include a list of covered prescriptions and their prices, called a formulary. Just like with the list of doctors, having a list of your prescription drugs prepared makes it easier to evaluate plans and enroll in one that covers everything you need.

  5. Keep Your Medicare Card Handy
  6. Few things are more frustrating than sitting down to complete a task, then realizing you’re missing an important piece of information. We want to save you that aggravation. You’ll need your Medicare number and Part A and B effective dates for your Medicare Advantage online enrollment. Make sure your Medicare card is nearby when you’re ready to enroll.

  7. Enroll in Medicare Advantage Online
  8. Now that you know you have all the essential information at your fingertips, the last thing to do is enroll. The Medicare Online Enrollment Portal makes it easy to find, compare, and enroll in Medicare Advantage online. Access the portal 24/7 to find plans in your area and complete a do-it-yourself enrollment for the plan that best suits you.

  9. Call for Assistance
