Medicare's Annual Enrollment Period is here!
Other types of Medicare plans may be changed more than once per year, but this is your only chance--barring any special circumstances--to enroll in a drug plan for 2022.
If you have a Medicare Part D drug plan it will renew automatically if you take no action. If you do want to make a drug plan change, please visit our Medicare Insurance Direct plan finder tool. This user-friendly website allows you to compare and enroll in drug plans. If you enroll through this website, we will be notified when an enrollment is submitted and can track the status of the application.

Keep in mind that the Dec. 7 deadline only affects drug plans for those already on Medicare and Medicare Advantage enrollments for those who do not already have one. Those who already have a Medicare Advantage plan have another enrollment season from Jan. 1 to Mar. 31. Medicare supplement plans do not have an annual enrollment season; they may be changed at any time.
If you are new to Medicare because you are turning 65, or are older than 65 and leaving employer group health coverage, you do not have a December 7 deadline. Your deadline varies based on your birth month or date your employer drug coverage ends. Please contact us for details on Initial Election and Special Election periods.
