Medicare Re Enrollment FAQs
Changing Where You Live
Original Medicare and Medigap plans have a nationwide service area. So, you can move to any address inside the United States and keep your plan.
Since Medicare Advantage plans have networks, you could move outside the network’s service area. Then you have two choices:
Switch to a new Medicare Advantage (MA) plan or Medicare drug plan
Disenroll from MA and return to Original Medicare
Moving in or out of an institution like a Skilled Nursing Facility can qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period. Learn when you can make coverage changes to your MA or Medicare prescription drug plan.
