Did you know that it is now Open Enrollment Season for Individual Health Insurance? During this Open Enrollment Season, Langlois Insurance Agency can assist you with renewing, updating and comparing your health insurance plan to see if Medicare Supplement Insurance is the right fit for your needs.
One question that we often get asked is, “When Is Open Enrollment for Medicare Supplement Insurance?
Medicare Supplement Open Enrollment runs from October 15 to December 7 each year. Please note that this does NOT apply to Medigap plans, which don’t have an annual open enrollment period. Medigap plans are only available without medical underwriting during your initial six month enrollment period.
Timeline for Open Enrollment:
Nov. 1, 2019: Open Enrollment starts — first day you can enroll, re-enroll, or change a 2019 insurance plan. Coverage can start as soon as Jan. 1, 2020.
Dec. 15, 2019: The last day to enroll in or change plans for coverage to start Jan. 1, 2020. After this date, you can enroll or change plans only if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
Jan. 1, 2020: Coverage for the year starts for those who enroll or change plans by Dec. 15, 2019.
