Connecticut is one of the few guaranteed-issued states that allows enrollees to switch their Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plan whenever they want. In most states, you need to go through medical underwriting and answer health questions before you are approved to switch to a new Medigap plan.
How are Connecticut’s Medigap switching rules different?
Individual Medigap plans in CT have guaranteed issuance to seniors at any time. On top of these, rates cannot be varied based upon an applicant’s age, gender, or health status. However, preexisting conditions may not be covered for the first six months.
Some other states like Maine have a similar rule, but you can only switch to a plan with equal or fewer benefits. Fortunately, that is not the case in Connecticut, where you can switch from any Medigap to any other Medigap. For example, you could leave Plan G for Plan F or the other way around.
