Medicare Annual Election Period

If you want to change Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C) or Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) plans, the best time to do so is during the Annual Election Period (also called Open Enrollment Period), which runs from October 15 to December 7 each year. During that period, you can:

  • Change from Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, to a Medicare Advantage plan.
  • Change from a Medicare Advantage plan back to Original Medicare, Part A and Part B.
  • Switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another.
  • Switch from a Medicare Advantage plan that doesn’t offer drug coverage to a Medicare Advantage plan that does.
  • Switch from a Medicare Advantage plan that offers drug coverage to a Medicare Advantage plan that doesn’t.
  • Switch from one Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D) to another.

When you change Medicare plans during the Annual Election Period, your new coverage begins on January 1 of the following year.
