When Can I Apply for a Medicare Supplement Plan?
You can apply within the six-month Medigap Open Enrollment Period. This will be the best time to gain your Medicare benefits. In addition, during this enrollment period, pricing and plan options from a Medicare insurance company are better. This period lasts six months and starts the month that you have Medicare Part B coverage and are 65 or older. This period can't be changed or repeated.
If you are under 65, you may not be able to enroll. However, if you have a disability or ESRD (end-stage renal disease), you may qualify for Medicare under age 65. Several states sell Medigap policies to these beneficiaries at a slightly higher price.
Can You Apply Outside the Medigap Open Enrollment Period?
Once your Medigap Open Enrollment Period ends, your application is reviewed by a medical underwriting team assigned to evaluate risk. Private insurance companies can approve policies at higher rates or deny coverage altogether.
This is not applicable if you have guaranteed issue rights, which can be applied in situations such as losing coverage or having a plan that no more extends services in your area. These unique situations are called Special Enrollment Periods, and if you are eligible for one, insurance companies cannot charge you more for applying outside of the Open Enrollment Period.
In Illinois, each year, Medigap beneficiaries ages 65-75 will have a window where they have the option to switch their current plan to a different plan of equal or lesser value from the same carrier. Insurance companies won't charge you for changing plans during this time. This period is 45 days long and starts on your birthday.
