When Can I Apply For a Medicare Supplement Plan?

The best time to apply for a Medicare Supplement Plan in Pennsylvania is during the six-month Medigap Open Enrollment period, which starts the first month that you are 65 and have Part B coverage. It is essential to enroll during this time, since the period cannot be changed or repeated. See below for age-specific application information.

If you are 65 or older: After the date you enroll in Part B, you will have six months to enroll in Medigap with a guaranteed plan of your choice.

If you are turning 65 soon: Plan to enroll in Medigap when you turn 65, right after you enroll in Part B. Again, you will have six months after the date you turn 65 and enroll in Part B.

If you are under 65: You may not have eligibility. In certain states, Medigap policies have to be sold to those under 65 with a qualifying disability or ESRD (end-stage renal disease), but they will generally cost you more.

Outside Medigap Open Enrollment

Though you can apply for Medigap insurance outside open enrollment, an insurer can impose:

  • Medical underwriting requirements.
  • Waiting periods before pre-existing conditions are covered.
  • Higher pricing or application denial due to health conditions.

Exceptions are made for beneficiaries with guaranteed issue rights.

Guaranteed Issue Rights

Examples of scenarios where you may have guaranteed issue rights:

  • You have a Medicare Advantage plan that either no longer partners with Medicare or discontinues coverage in your service area.
  • You enrolled in Medicare Advantage or Medicare SELECT and then relocated out of the plan's service area.
  • You are covered under Original Medicare and an employer or union group health insurance plan, and now you are losing the group plan coverage.
  • You have a trial right because you are changing from a Medicare Advantage plan or Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) within the first year of joining.
  • You have a trial right because you previously had Medigap insurance, which you dropped to join Medicare Advantage or Medicare SELECT, and you want to switch back within a year.
