Enroll in your Maryland Medigap Plan IMMEDIATELY

Our caps lock button didn’t get stuck. We really mean it! There is one Maryland Medigap Open Enrollment Period (OEP, also called your Medigap initial enrollment period). This OEP occurs when you first qualify for Medicare Part Ba and it is not an annual event. OEP generally applies to those turning 65. However, if you delay Medicare Part B while you continue working your OEP can begin later.
