The Medicare open enrollment period – also referred to as the Medicare annual enrollment period (AEP) – impacts Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D drug plans. If you have one of these plans and want to change to a different plan, the Medicare AEP is the one time during the year when you can do that. So do not miss the deadline!
If you have a Medicare supplement plan you can change any time during the year.
The Medicare annual enrollment period 2013 is Oct. 15, 2012 through Dec. 7 2012. That is the sign up time for plans that start Jan. 1, 2013.
