When it comes to retirement, Florida gets all the attention. But when it comes to quality health care coverage during retirement, maybe Floridians should be California dreamin’. Why? Because California has more Medicare beneficiaries than any other US state. In fact, there were over 6.2 million people enrolled in Medicare in California in 2018. (That’s nearly two million more than the “Sunshine State.”)

Medicare enrollment periods are divided up into three primary timeframes:
If you’re enrolling in Medicare for the first time, you can enroll in a Medicare plan during your Initial Enrollment Period. Your Initial Enrollment Period begins three months before the month of your 65th birthday and ends three months after your birth month.
If you’re already on Original Medicare and want to upgrade your coverage by switching to a Medicare Advantage plan, you can do so during the Annual Enrollment Period, which starts October 15 and ends December 7 every year.
Under some circumstances, you may be able to enroll in a Medicare plan during a Special Enrollment Period. For example, you may be able to enroll in coverage or switch plans if you’ve recently moved or if you’re currently living in a nursing home. Talk to one of our licensed agents today to see if your special circumstance applies.
