Are you dissatisfied with your private Medicare insurance plan or its customer service? Are you taking medications they refuse to cover? There are many circumstances when you can change Medicare insurance plans prior to the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15th - December 7th). This is true for Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug plans as well as Medicare Supplement plans.
If your complaints about your Medicare plan leave you interested in changing plans, you can speak to a licensed agent at 877-531-4193 to discuss whether you are eligible to do so outside of Annual Enrollment Period. For example, you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period if ANY of the following applies to your circumstances:
If there is a top-rated 5 star plan available in your area and your current plan does not have this rating
You have a medical condition that qualifies you for a Special Needs Plan in your area
If you participate in the Extra Help program
If you move to a new area outside your plan's coverage
You are within three months of your 65th birthday
You just moved into, or out of, a nursing home, skilled nursing facility or other institution
You belong to a Medicare Savings Program
If you are no longer eligible for Medicaid
You left coverage from your employer or union
You deserve to be satisfied with your Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D, or Medicare Supplement plan. If you're current plan is leaving you with complaints, it's time to explore other options.
Medicare has been collecting ratings on Medicare Advantage and Part D prescription drug plans. You can visit PlanPrescriber.com to review the ratings for Medicare plans. PlanPrescriber allows you to see all the Medicare Advantage or Part D plans in your area and displays overall plan ratings for every plan for which Medicare has collected data.
