Helpful Hints

There is a Medicare Advantage open enrollment period from January 1 – March 31, 2024.  If you are already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, you can:

  • Switch to a different Medicare Advantage plan.
  • Switch to Original Medicare and enroll in a Part D plan.

If a drug you have been taking is not on your new plan’s formulary, your plan must give you a 30-day transition refill within the first 90 days of enrollment. It must also give you a notice explaining that your transition refill is temporary and informing you of your right to appeal.
