I'm turning 65. When should I sign up?

You can sign up for Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan during the three months before, the month of and the three months after your 65th birthday. If you don’t sign up for prescription drug coverage or a plan with prescription drug coverage during that time, you may pay a penalty on your premium once you do. You can read more in our Medicare 101 Guide.

When can I sign up for or switch plans?

After your initial enrollment period, you can join or switch plans during set times each year.
The Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) goes from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. If you have Original Medicare, you can join a Medicare Advantage plan during this time. If you already have a Medicare Advantage plan, you can switch to another or go back to Original Medicare. Your new plan will start on Jan. 1 of the next year.
The Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period (MA OEP) goes from Jan. 1 to March 31. It’s for people who are already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan — even if you just signed up for one during AEP.
During MA OEP, you can switch to another Medicare Advantage plan. Or you can switch to Original Medicare. But you can only switch once during this period each year. Your new plan will start on the first day of the month after you sign up.
Need a plan outside of these dates? If you’ve lost your coverage or had a major life change, you may qualify to make changes to your plan right away. Call us if you have questions.

What's your biggest piece of advice for me for choosing a plan?

When comparing plans, ask yourself these questions first.

  • What's your plan's rating?
  • Can you still see your favorite doctors?
  • If the plan you're considering has prescription coverage, are all your drugs covered?
  • What extra benefits do you get like dental, fitness and vision?
  • And is it better for you to spend less per month and more each time you get care, or vice versa?
Why would I choose a PPO plan like BlueAdvantage?

PPO plans offer you a wide network from which you can choose your care. You can use the Find Care tool to see if your doctors and hospitals are in your plan's network.

With a PPO plan, you also get some benefits when you see providers outside of your network, but you’ll pay more than you would for an in-network provider. That means more providers and hospitals who are available with no referrals.
