Medicare Annual Election Period is Over, But not for Everybody

If you meet certain requirements you can still 
make some changes in your healthcare coverage 
even after the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) 
ended December 7th.

Here are 6 requirements for your eligibility:
1.     If you are duo eligible, that is, if you are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, you can make changes in your healthcare plan throughout the year.
2.     If you have a special need, specifically diabetes, you can also make changes throughout the year. 
3.     If you just you just turned 65 and became eligible for Medicare, you have a seven month (three months before your birthday, your birthday month, and three months after the birthday month) window to enroll in whatever Medicare Advantage plan or Part D Prescription plan you choose. 
4.     If you become eligible due to a disability.     
5.     If you move, you may change to a different plan than was offered in an area where you formerly lived.      
6.     And, if your coverage through your employer or union group health plan ends, you have a Special Election Period (SEP) to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan or a Part D Prescription plan. The SEP ends two months after your coverage through the group plan ends.
