Open enrollment period is the six month period that begins on the first day of the month that you are both 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B.
Throughout open enrollment period, you can enroll in any Medicare Supplement Insurance plan offered in your service area with guaranteed issue. This means that insurance companies aren’t allowed to use your medical history or preexisting conditions as the basis for denial of coverage or increasing your premiums.
“Guaranteed Issue Rights” – Open Enrollment Period May be the Only Time You Have a Guaranteed Right to Enroll in Any Medicare Supplement Plan Offered in Your State.
If you have preexisting medical conditions or disabilities, it’s imperative to take advantage of open enrollment period. It can be a lot more difficult finding Medicare Supplement plan coverage after open enrollment period has passed.
