When can I enroll in Medigap?
Before you can enroll in Medigap you must first sign up for Original Medicare. Most people enroll in Medigap during their initial enrollment period. This is the time starting three months before your Medicare part B effective date until 6 months after. This ensures you will be accepted by a Medigap policy with guaranteed issuance.
That being said, technically you can enroll whenever you want, but unless you live in one of the states where you are guaranteed to be approved by Medigap, you may have to answer medical questions before approval.
