Important information: enrollment and eligibility

Unless you recently became eligible for Medicare, or qualify under another special circumstance, you'll have to wait until October 15 of each year to enroll in one of our Medicare Prescription Drug or Medicare Advantage plans.  

Enrollment and eligibility exceptions

These special circumstances include, but are not limited to, individuals:

  • who recently became eligible for Medicare
  • who were enrolled in a plan and recently moved
  • who entered a nursing home
  • eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid
  • with low income
  • disenrolling from an employer group health plan
  • who involuntarily lost creditable prescription drug coverage.

If you recently became eligible for Medicare, you can enroll in a Humana Medicare plan right here on our website.
