Medigap Monday: When Can I Upgrade From A Medicare Advantage Plan To A Medicare Supplement
There are two time periods of the year that you can upgrade from a Medicare Advantage Plan to a Medicare Supplement Plan. The first is the one we’re all familiar with, the Annual Election Period which is every year between October 15th and December 7th. The second is called the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period, which started January 1st and will end March 31st.
You will not be automatically approved to go from a Medicare Advantage Plan to a Medicare Supplement Plan. In most cases, you will have to through the underwriting process which will require you to answer around 20 health questions and the underwriters will also cross reference your medications and look about 2 years back into your health history.
