Medicare and Turning 65: 7 Questions to Ask Your Agent (Continued)

When can I make changes to my plan?

After your Initial Enrollment Period (IEP), you can add, drop or alter your Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription Drugs (Part D) plans during the Annual Election Period (AEP), which runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7 annually. The Open Enrollment Period (OEP) offers you the opportunity to swap plans once at any time between Jan. 1 and March 31. But your opportunities to make changes to your Medicare coverage doesn’t end there.

Depending on your current circumstances, you could be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) that typically lasts two full months. To find out if you qualify for an SEP, be sure to ask your agent this question.

Can I keep my doctor?

Not every doctor accepts Medicare. While working with an agent during your initial enrollment, ask them to look up your doctors. Your agent can tell you which of your doctors accept Medicare, along with which networks each doctor has joined.

Will my plan travel with me?

This is an important question to ask if you spend part of the year away from your primary address or if you travel often. The plan you choose during your IEP may not be accepted if you need care while away from home.

Which companies does your insurance agent represent?

This question can help you determine if your agent is equipped to provide you with a comprehensive view of your plan options. An agent licensed to work with several Medicare providers can help you understand the broader range of plan options available to you rather than just one carrier’s plans.
