The Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period is only accessible for current Medicare Advantage policyholders. During this time, Original Medicare policyholders cannot:

  • Switch from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan
  • Join a Medicare Prescription Drug plan (Part D)
  • Switch Medicare Prescription Drug plans

The time allotted to change the above three scenarios occurs during the Medicare Annual Enrollment period which occurs in the fall from October 15 to December 7.
