Eligibility and Service Area

Where are Banner Medicare Advantage plans available? 

Banner Medicare Advantage plans are available to Medicare-eligible individuals who reside in Maricopa, Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz and/or Yuma Counties in Arizona (known as the plan “service area”). You must live in one of these areas to join the plan and reside in the service area while you are a plan member. Once becoming a Banner Medicare Advantage member, if you plan to move out of the service area, please call our Customer Care Center.  

Who is eligible to join Banner Medicare Advantage? 

You can join Banner Medicare Advantage if you are entitled to Medicare Part A and enrolled in Medicare Part B and live in the service area.

I recently moved to Maricopa, Pima or Pinal County, and the Medicare plan I chose is not offered here. May I enroll in Banner Medicare Advantage now or do I have to wait for annual open enrollment? 

If you have moved to Maricopa, Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz or Yuma County and the county in which you now live is not in your current plan’s service area, you need to contact our Customer Care Center for your current plan. Your current plan will confirm whether or not you are in the plan service area; if you are not, they will initiate a “Special Enrollment Period” for you, during which you can enroll in a Banner Medicare Advantage plan, if eligible.
