Medicare enrollment periods
Annual Enrollment Period (AEP)
Also known as the Open Enrollment Period (OEP), Annual Enrollment begins October 15 and ends December 7 each year. This is the time of year when you can enroll in new Medicare plans, make changes to your current Medicare elections, or cancel your plans. Any changes you make during Annual Enrollment will officially start January 1 the following year.
If you like your current plan and don’t need to make any changes, then you don’t have to do anything. You will be re-enrolled in your plan automatically.
