Found Your Enrollment Status?

If you’re enrolled in Medicare Part A without Medicare Part B, you do not qualify for Medicare Advantage Plans or Dual Special Needs Plans. In order to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you must be enrolled in both Medicare Parts A and B. Only individuals who are enrolled in both Medicare Parts A and B as well as their state Medicaid program are eligible for Dual Special Needs Plans. Once you are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B, you may explore Medicare Advantage plans in your area. Many Medicare Advantage plans offer premiums as low as $0 and may provide additional benefits.

If you’re enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B but not eligible for and enrolled in Medicaid, you do not qualify for Dual Special Needs Plans. You are qualified for Medicare Advantage Plans, however. Many Medicare Advantage Plans offer premiums as low as $0 and may provide additional benefits not included with Medicare Parts A and B.

Annual Election Period

From October 15 through December 7 each year, Medicare beneficiaries have a chance to change their coverage for the following year.

Special Enrollment

If your coverage options have changed because of moving, losing Medicaid coverage, leaving an employer plan, or other reasons, you may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period.
