Helpful Hints

If you were denied access to a service by your Medicare Advantage plan, you can find out how to appeal this denial under the Med. Adv. plans heading on the home page.

You may be able to overturn a denial of a prescription drug by appealing to your insurance plan.  Refer to  “Appeal Denied Coverage” under Drug Plans on the home page. 

If you lose Extra Help benefits for your Medicare drug plan, you have a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) to switch from either your Medicare Advantage plan (with drug coverage) or Part D plan. This SEP begins the month you are notified by the plan of the Extra Help loss and continues for two months.  Use the plan finder in to determine if another plan is more affordable. Coverage under a new plan begins the first day of the month after you apply.
