Annual Enrollment Period (AEP)

The Annual Enrollment Period for 2020 starts on Oct. 15, 2019 and ends on Dec. 7, 2019. During this period, you can…

  • Enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan from Original Medicare
  • Enroll from one Medicare Advantage plan to another
  • Enroll in Original Medicare from a Medicare Advantage plan

When you make changes to your coverage during this time, they take effect Jan. 1, 2020.

  • Enroll from one Medicare Advantage plan to another
  • Enroll from a Medicare Advantage plan to Original Medicare (but not from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan)
  • Individuals may add or drop Part D coverage

Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs)

You could qualify for a Special Enrollment Period during any month when certain events happen in your life, even if it’s outside of AEP and OEP. You may qualify for an SEP if…

  • You move
  • You are eligible for Medicaid
  • You qualify for Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug costs
  • You move to an institution, like a skilled nursing facility or long term care hospital
  • You want to switch to a plan with a 5-star overall quality rating

If you don’t, you might owe a penalty. Medicare beneficiaries who go for 63 days or more without “creditable drug coverage” must pay a late enrollment penalty. Creditable coverage is prescription drug coverage that meets Original Medicare’s standards.
