Ready to Enroll?
When it comes to enrolling in Medigap, there are a few things that you’ll need to keep in mind. First, you will need to be enrolled in Original Medicare before you can buy a Medigap plan. Second, your Medigap Open Enrollment Period will start as soon as you have Original Medicare coverage and are 65. Once these things happen, we can walk you through the enrollment process and find you a Medigap plan that works for you!
If you’re currently enrolled in Medicare Advantage but want a Medigap plan, then you can make the switch to a Medigap plan during the first 12 months of having your Medicare Advantage plan as you will still have guaranteed issue rights.
