Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) is one of the busiest times of the year for producers that work the senior market and it is right around the corner! Every year from October 15 – December 7, people enrolled in Medicare Advantage (MA) plans have the opportunity to dis-enroll from their current plan and select a new MA plan or return to Original Medicare and purchase a Medicare supplement policy.
It’s also the time when MA organizations can discontinue plans which could leave your over age 65 clients looking for health coverage elsewhere. Keep in mind, that even though this is the enrollment time for MA members to enroll/dis-enroll, Medicare supplement members can make changes to their current plan at any time throughout the year, with any carrier. It’s important to stay in touch with your clients as they approach Medicare age as well as current Medicare supplement clients because many situations can occur that will leave them looking for plan solutions. Whether it’s aging into Medicare and finding the best plan for them, or their current plan has faced a rate increase, these situations are a great opportunity to offer that expert help that you bring to the client.
