Open Enrollment for Medicare Advantage Plans

For coverage starting on January 1, the annual open enrollment period is October 15 – December 7 of the previous year. During Open Enrollment you can sign up or change your Medicare Advantage Plan. You can also sign up for a Medicare Advantage Plan when you turn 65, or if you become disabled (under age 65). Learn more about when you can enroll in Medicare at Medicare.gov.

Switching Medicare Advantage Plans Outside of Open Enrollment

Medicare allows patients enrolled with a Medicare Advantage plan to make one switch to their plan between January 1 and March 31. During this period patients may choose to switch to another Medicare Advantage (Part C) plan or to disenroll from their Medicare Advantage plan and keep Original Medicare along with a Part D plan. If you would like to access primary care services at UC San Diego Health under a Medicare Advantage plan, see the plans linked above.
