Information on When You Can Enroll

Initial Coverage Election Period

If you are newly eligible for Medicare, you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan during an Initial Coverage Election Period. This period begins three months before the month you turn 65 and lasts through the three months after you turn 65.

Annual Election Period

If you already qualify for Medicare benefits, you can enroll or change your plan during an annual election period from October 15 through December 7. Any changes that you make to your plan will take effect on January 1.

If you do not enroll between October 15 and December 7, you will not have another chance until next year unless you qualify for a special election period. Please don’t miss this important opportunity to enroll in a Health Partners Medicare plan.

Special Election Period

Special election periods are in addition to the annual election periods. You may have an opportunity to participate in a special election period if you are eligible for Extra Help, or if certain events happen in your life. You also may be eligible if you permanently move outside of your current Medicare plan’s service area or if you lose other insurance coverage.
