Medicare Open Enrollment now through 12/7/19

October 16, 2019


Medicare is now open for enrollment until October 15, 2019.

Medicare Open Enrollment for 2020 is from October 15, 2019 through December 7, 2019. The first time you can enroll is called the “Initial Enrollment Period.” The 7-month Initial Enrollment Period usually begins:

  • Three months before the month you turn age 65
  • Includes the month you turn 65
  • Ends three months after the month you turn 65

NEW 2020 CHANGES

*NEW*: Between January 1 and March 31 of each year, if you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you can leave your plan and return to the Original Medicare and buy a Part D prescription drug plan to supplement your Original Medicare. As of 2019, you also have the option to switch to a different Medicare Advantage Plan during this time. Click here to be directed to the Medicare website for more information.

Genesee Health Plan has six certified Medicare and Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP) Counselors available to assist you with enrollment into a Medicare Plan. Appointments are preferred and required documents to bring include:

  • Prescription drug list with dosage amounts
  • Medicare card with new Medicare number

Call our office at 810-232-7740 to schedule an appointment to enroll into Medicare during the Open Enrollment Period.

**Please be aware that due to limited space, there are only two chairs in each Enrollment and Health Navigation office.**
