Individuals who are eligible but didn’t sign up for Medicare Part B during this AEP, or dropped or lost coverage in the past year, have another chance to enroll! Beneficiaries can enroll in Part B during the Open Enrollment Period, January 1 through March 31 each year. Enrollees’ Part B coverage starts July 1, 2021.
Eligible individuals who sign up for Part B may choose how to get their Medicare coverage:
- Original Medicare includes Part A and Part B. Those who enroll can buy supplemental coverage to help pay out-of-pocket costs. They can also get Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D).
- Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called “Part C” or “MA Plans,” are an “all-in-one” alternative to original Medicare. They are offered by private companies approved by Medicare.
