When should you enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan?

As soon as you enroll in Original Medicare

The best time to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan is right after you enroll in Original Medicare Parts A and B.  This could be during the three months before your 65th birthday, your birthday month and the three months after, or later when you retire. Each year, you can add or change a Medicare Advantage Plan during the Annual Election Period (AEP), which lasts from October 15 to December 7. Sometimes you can qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP).

Missouri Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage Plans work like traditional HMOs and PPOs, which you may already be familiar with. We also offer Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans for those who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. All our Medicare Advantage Plans come with preventive care benefits to help keep you healthy and on the go.

HMO

With Anthem HMOs, you benefit from our leading network of doctors and care providers. You’ll save on monthly premiums with rates as low as $0 and save on doctor visits, too. On an HMO plan, you’ll choose a primary care physician (PCP) who you’ll see for all your check-ups and regular exams. Your PCP also directs you to the right specialists when you need them.

PPO

On an Anthem PPO, you’ll have lots of flexibility. You’ll still pick a primary care physician for check-ups, but you can also choose to see any doctor or specialist in your network without needing a referral. At Anthem, our network is always growing to serve you better. You can also see doctors outside your network but services may cost more.
