When can I apply for a Medicare Supplement plan?

The Medigap Open Enrollment Period is a six-month window starting with the first day of the month you turn 65 or older. However, it would help if you first enrolled in Medicare Part B.

In Texas, state law requires private health insurance companies to sell Medigap policies to beneficiaries under 65 who have a disability or end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

During the Medigap Open Enrollment Period, a Medicare insurance company must:

  • Sell you a Medigap plan in Texas for a rate unrelated to your health conditions.
  • Waive the waiting period for pre-existing conditions.

Although you can apply outside the Medigap Open Enrollment Period, you will be subject to medical underwriting requirements. The exception is if you have guaranteed issue rights.

Scenarios for guaranteed issue rights include:

  • You are losing a Medicare Advantage plan because it ceased coverage in your area, or you will no longer participate with Medicare.
  • You moved out of the area that your plan services.
  • Your coverage under a group health plan is ending – this may include employee, retiree, or COBRA coverage.
  • You are within the time allowed to switch back to Medigap after enrollment in Medicare Advantage or Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).
  • You lost a Medigap policy through no fault of your own.

FAQ:

Can I be denied Medigap coverage?

Outside the Medigap Open Enrollment Period, an insurer can deny coverage for health reasons unless you have guaranteed issue rights.

When can I change Medigap plans?

You are protected by federal law if you want to switch during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period or if you have guaranteed issue rights. Otherwise, your application will go through the underwriting process and can be denied.
