Frequently Asked Questions
You can contact our office at (208) 201-0118 and we can give you more information about the OEP and determine whether or not you qualify.
If I am unsatisfied with my current Medicare Advantage Plan but I’ve already used some of the benefits, can I still change my plan?
Even if you’ve used your current plan benefits, you may still be eligible to change plans.
Your new plan would begin on the 1st of the month following the change. Example: We write your new plan on January 22nd, your new plan benefits would start February 1st.
What if I don’t want a Medicare Advantage Plan and I want to go back to my Medicare Supplement, Plan F or Plan G?
You may be eligible to drop your Medicare Advantage Plan and revert back to Original Medicare with a Supplement and a Prescription Drug Plan. You can contact us at (208) 201-0118 to see if you qualify.
You may be eligible if you have a Special Election Period but you may not automatically enroll in a new Medicare Advantage Plan using the Open Enrollment Period Option.
Unfortunately, no. Once you have selected a Prescription Drug Plan (Part D), you are locked in to that plan for the remainder of the calendar year.
I didn’t enroll in a Part D drug plan last year and now I need one. Can I enroll in a Part D drug plan during the Open Enrollment Period?
Unfortunately, no. Because you did not enroll in a Part D drug plan last year, you are not eligible to enroll in a new drug plan until the Annual Election Period which runs from October 15th to December 7th.
