With Medicare’s Open Enrollment now closed what do you do if your health plan or Rx plan aren’t up to par? Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans are available year round as long as they meet one criterion.
How Can I Switch My Medicare Health Plan Outside of Open Enrollment?
If your plan does not work for you Medicare is allowing for you to switch your MA plan or Rx plan anytime during the year if the plan you are choosing has a 5-star rating. It appears that you can only “switch” your plan, not enroll for the first time in one of these plans year round.
“Plan ratings are based on member surveys, information from doctors and health care providers, and other sources. The plan ratings are scores that show the quality and performance of the plan, on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest rated plans.” -from the CMS Blog.
