Moving with Medicare May 2017
Moving with Medicare....
When you move Medicare allows for a Special Enrollment Period. This pertains to Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans only.
If you have Original Medicare, it moves with you throughout the United States.
Check out the information from Medicare.gov on Special Enrollments Periods/Moving (SEP'S)
If you tell your plan before you move, your chance to switch plans begins the month before the month you move and continues for 2 full months after you move.
If you tell your plan after you move, your chance to switch plans begins the month you tell your plan, plus 2 more full months.
If you’re in a Medicare Advantage (MA) Plan and you move outside your plan’s service area, you can also choose to return to Original Medicare. If you don’t enroll in a new MA Plan during the time explained below, you’ll be enrolled in Original Medicare when you’re disenrolled from your old Medicare Advantage Plan.
