When Can I Apply for a Medicare Supplement Plan?
Every beneficiary has a unique Medigap Open Enrollment Period that starts the first month that you are 65 or older and lasts for the next six months. This period will only start if you are enrolled in Medicare Part B.
During those six months, all beneficiaries enjoy the following guaranteed issue rights:
- Guaranteed acceptance into the beneficiary's plan of choice
- No medical underwriting, so current health conditions and pre-existing conditions aren't factors in rating
- Policy continuance as long as premiums are paid
Some beneficiaries enjoy eligibility for special enrollment periods with the same guaranteed issue rights after the Initial Enrollment Period. Talking to a licensed insurance agent or one of our Policy Guides may help beneficiaries determine the best time for enrollment.
When Under 65
Several states allow beneficiaries under the age of 65 to purchase a Medigap policy if they have a disability or ESRD (end-stage renal disease). However, these plans often cost more.
Special Enrollment Periods
There are a few times when Arkansas seniors have guaranteed issue rights outside of Open Enrollment:
- You retire from or lose group coverage
- You lose a Medicare Advantage plan
- You have a Medicare SELECT insurance policy and switch to a Medigap policy within 12 months.

Medicare Supplement plans range from $40 to $200 per month. However, the exact cost of coverage will depend on factors such as age, gender, geographic location, and tobacco use history.
Aetna and Cigna are two of the best options. Both companies offer a range of Medigap plans and a variety of coverage levels to choose from.
A 65-year-old may pay $139 monthly for a Plan G Medigap policy from one insurance company, while another may charge more. The cost of a Medigap Plan G in Arkansas will vary depending on factors such as the insurance provider, location, and age.
Beneficiaries can't switch to a new Medigap insurance policy without going through medical underwriting unless they qualify for a special enrollment period. For instance, beneficiaries may change with guaranteed issue rights if they lose coverage due to a move out of state or leaving their plan's service area.
No Medicare insurance company can deny coverage to beneficiaries applying within their Initial Enrollment Period. However, outside the Initial Enrollment Period, the insurer can deny a beneficiary's application or increase rates based on pre-existing conditions. The only exception is a beneficiary qualifies for guaranteed issue rights during a special enrollment period.
