There are some states that allow switching Medigap at any time of the year. Each of these states handles it a little differently. Most of the rest of the country only qualifies for Medigap guaranteed issue during the initial enrollment period.

Individual Medigap plans in CT have guaranteed issuance to seniors at any time. On top of this rates cannot be varied based upon an applicant’s age, gender, or health status.

New York Medigap Policies
Individual Medigap plans in NY have guaranteed issuance for seniors at any time. In addition, seniors cannot be denied or charged any more for health status, claims experience, medical condition or whether the applicant is receiving health care services. However, a preexisting limitation may apply -usually for six months.
Washington Medigap Policies
