Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) runs from October 15 to December 7 each year. Anyone who is already enrolled in Medicare can add, drop or change plans during the AEP. Any changes that you make to your coverage will go into effect on January 1.
You have a one-time opportunity to make a change to your Medicare Advantage Plan during the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period (OEP). The OEP is only available to people already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan. You have the option to switch Medicare Advantage plans, return to Original Medicare or join a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. The OEP runs from January 1 through March 31.
If you want to end your Medicare coverage, you may need to meet with a Social Security representative to fill out the right paperwork. You can terminate your Medicare coverage, but it is important that you understand the impact of that decision. You may lose benefits or experience a gap in coverage. If you decide to re-enroll at a later date you will have to pay late enrollment penalties.
