About Medicare Open Enrollment:
The Medicare Open Enrollment Period also known as the Annual Election Period (AEP) for Medicare health and prescription drug plans happens only once per year.
Medicare Advantage plans offer additional benefits not covered by Original Medicare. Plan options may include coverage for prescription drugs, dental, vision, hearing, fitness and more.
During Medicare open enrollment, sometimes called the Medicare annual enrollment, you can change Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D plans, including changing your coverage, switching between plan types and adding prescription drug benefits.
Enrollment for Medicare enrollees who want to make changes to their coverage happens every fall between October 15 and December 7. Any changes you make during the 2023 Medicare enrollment period will affect your 2024 Medicare plan, beginning January 1, 2024.
