The time is here for Medicare recipients to make decisions on what they want their plans to be for 2022.
Medicare open enrollment
Medicare open enrollment runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7 every years.
People may switch between an original Medicare Plan and a Medicare Advantage Plan.
People may also choose new plans or prescription drug coverage.
All changes become effective in 2022.
Medicare general enrollment
General enrollment runs between Jan. 1 and March 31 every year for those who want to change back or don’t like their decision.
These changes go into effect July 1.
At this time anyone that did not sign up when they turned 65 may enroll in Parts A and B. Some people qualify for a special enrollment period. This includes moving and other big life events.
