Enrollment Periods


ICEP

The ICEP is the period during which an individual newly eligible for Medicare may make an initial enrollment request to enroll in a Medicare Plan. This period begins 3 months before an individual turns 65 years old and it ends 3 months after turning 65 years old.



AEP

The AEP election period will begin October 15 to December 7 of every year. During the AEP, members may enroll in or disenroll from any type of Plan. If you enroll during this period, the effective date of your enrollment will be 01/01.



OEP

The annual Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period happens from January 1 to March 31. During this time, you can switch to another Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D) or disenroll from your plan and return to Original Medicare and elect a standalone Part D product. If you choose to switch to Original Medicare during this period, you have until March 31 to join a separate Medicare prescription drug plan to add drug coverage.
