As Medicare Advantage membership continues to grow, so do the plans and benefits we’re able to offer our members. Even if you’re happy with your current Medicare coverage, you might want to take some time to see what new benefits may be available to you with a Medicare Advantage plan.
Is your healthcare plan still meeting your healthcare needs?

If you’re enrolled in Original Medicare and you’ve purchased separate prescription drug and Medicare Supplement plans, consider the convenience of an all-in-one Medicare Advantage plan. Most MA plans now include prescription drug coverage. Plus the security of an annual maximum out-of-pocket cost,* only available with Medicare Advantage, offers an added level of protection against high healthcare costs.

Most of our Medicare Advantage plans now include coverage for prescription drugs. Many include coverage for routine dental, vision and hearing care, as well—benefits not provided by Original Medicare.
If you find a better fit, you’ll have an opportunity to switch your Medicare plan each year.
Here’s what you need to know about switching your Medicare Advantage plan
The Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP) takes place each year from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. During this time you can:
- Switch from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan
- Change from a Medicare Advantage plan back to Original Medicare
- Switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another Medicare Advantage plan
Coverage begins on Jan. 1.
Making the switch during the Annual Enrollment Period is simple
- If you currently have Original Medicare and switch to a Medicare Advantage plan, your new health insurance plan will be activated on Jan. 1.
- If you’re switching from one Medicare Advantage plan to another, you’ll automatically be disenrolled from your old plan when your new plan takes effect. Now that’s simple!
- If you have a stand-alone prescription drug plan and/or a Medicare Supplement plan and you switch to an all-in-one Medicare Advantage plan, we can guide you through the steps to disenroll from your old plan(s). Your new coverage will begin on Jan. 1.
Don’t let concerns about how to switch Medicare plans keep you from looking at the “why.” If your current coverage isn’t meeting your needs, explore your options.
*The maximum out-of-pocket limit varies by plan and does not include costs for prescription drugs.
