Medicare Plans

Open enrollment for Medicare is from October 15 to December 7, 2017. This is the one time of year you can join or change your Medicare coverage.

You first become eligible for Medicare when you turn 65 and must join within 60 days of this important birthday. Moving forward, you make all your updates during each year's Open Enrollment.
