Special Qualifying Events

Medicare Special Enrollment

Once enrolled in Medicare, if you wish to change or purchase Medicare Advantage and Part Plans, you must act during the open enrollment period.

When open enrollment is closed, there are special circumstances in which one may qualify to enroll outside of the enrollment period. Listed below are the qualifying events:

You are turning 65
You move to a new area that is not in your current plan’s service area
Recently moved back to the US
You lose your current coverage (either Group or Medicaid)
You now need a SNP (Special Needs Plan) or you no longer need a SNP
