Medicare Enrollment ends in --- days
The Medicare Annual Election Period is October 15 – December 7. This is when you have the opportunity to enroll or make changes in your Medicare coverage. We’re here to help keep things simple and provide easy-to-understand answers. We’ll help you ask the right questions, so you can decide if your insurance plan, doctor and medical group are right for you, your health and your budget.

Considering a change? Now is the time to explore your options.
If you already have Medicare coverage but you think that your current plan may no longer be the best fit for your needs, now’s the best time to look at your options.
- Are you interested in a new health care provider?
- Have you had a new health diagnosis?
- How about a change in your prescription drugs?
If so, this is the time of year when Medicare Beneficiaries can make changes to their plans or switch from Original Medicare to Medicare Advantage. At HealthCare Partners, we can connect you with a licensed insurance agent who can help you understand your options.

Frequently Asked Questions
You've got questions, we've got answers.
How do I know if I'm eligible for Medicare Advantage?
You’re probably eligible if:
- You have Medicare Part A and Part B
- You live in the service area of the plan you want to join
When can I make the switch to Medicare Advantage?
During the Medicare Annual Election Period, October 15–December 7.
What’s included in Medicare Advantage?
For the most part, everything you get with Original Medicare. The only exception is hospice care, which is covered by Original Medicare. But Medicare Advantage Plans may also provide:
- Access to the HealthCare Partners team of primary and specialty health care providers that are selected for their commitment to quality
- Preventive services, such as wellness checks
- Coverage for vision, dental, assisted living or nursing home care
- Enhanced prescription drug benefits
- Access to transportation to and from your medical appointments
- A cap on out-of-pocket expenses, such as the 20% coinsurance charged by Original Medicare
- Added benefits, such as gym memberships

Why is a big, healthy network so important to your health?
A big, healthy network gives you more ways to access care when and where you need it.
Let’s say you experience an unexpected health event and you need to visit a nearby hospital. If that hospital is out-of-network (because your provider’s network is too small), you may be forced to pay significantly higher costs. In fact, a recent study* showed that nearly 7 in 10 Americans with unaffordable out-of-network medical bills did not know the health care provider was not in their plan’s network at the time they received care.
