Switching my Medicare Advantage Plan outside of "general open enrollment"?

328 Views
Message 11 of 11

I recently found that a large local medical group (at which I see at least 3 doctors) will no longer accept FloridaBlue Medicare Advantage. This surprise came after the end of the open enrollment period last December 7.

 

Tonight I saw an article at the "Fool.com" website indicating that there's a special enrollment period for those in Medicare Advantage Plans who either want to change the MA plan or go to straight Medicare (see https://www.fool.com/retirement/2020/03/01/attention-seniors-it-may-not-be-too-late-to-change.aspx).

 

Medicare seems to indicate this (at https://www.medicare.gov/sign-up-change-plans/joining-a-health-or-drug-plan  ...click the part about Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment) is true and the period extends from January 1 to March 31. There are some restrictions on this but if true I am tempted to go back to the regular Medicare plans (and I will have to re-educate myself on all of these, ~sigh~)

 

Can anyone confirm this rule? Thanks!
