When can I apply for a Medicare Supplement plan?
Every beneficiary has a unique Medigap Open Enrollment Period that opens at the start of the month you turn 65 and lasts for the next six months. 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 can I change Medigap plans?
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, a beneficiary may change with guaranteed issue rights if they move out of state or out of their plan's current coverage area.
After switching Medicare Supplement plans, beneficiaries have 30 days to change their minds. After that, the Free Look Period requires beneficiaries to pay premiums for both policies for one month in exchange for the right to switch back if desired.
Can I be denied Medigap coverage?
No Medicare insurance company can deny coverage to a beneficiary applying within their Initial Enrollment Period. In addition, beneficiaries enjoy guaranteed issue rights that ensure acceptance into the plan of their choice during those six months.
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.
