Aetna Medicare Insurance for New Jerseyans
New Jersey residents play second fiddle to no one, and neither does their health coverage. In fact, New Jersey ranks as one of the top 10 states in the nation for total residents on Original Medicare.* Medicare Advantage is also available in your state, giving you more healthcare options with fewer headaches. Instead of spending your hard-earned money on medical expenses, protect your health with a Medicare plan.
New Jersey ranks in the top 10 states for number of Original Medicare beneficiaries at over 1.2 million.*

Am I eligible for Medicare in New Jersey?
You’re eligible for Medicare if you’re 65 or older and a legal US resident. If you’re a resident under 65, you may be eligible as well if you have certain health conditions. If you need more benefits than what Original Medicare offers, Medicare Advantage plans may be the right choice for you.
Medicare’s varied options have different levels of eligibility. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your eligibility for Medicare plans, including Aetna Medicare Advantage, make the call. A friendly, licensed agent can help.
When can I enroll?
There are three primary Medicare enrollment periods:
Initial Enrollment Period
If you’re turning 65 soon and enrolling in Medicare for the first time, you have the month of your 65th birthday and a three-month grace period before and after your birthday known as the Initial Enrollment Period.
Annual Enrollment Period
Already have Original Medicare and want to upgrade your coverage by switching to a Medicare Advantage plan? Make the switch during the Annual Enrollment Period which starts October 15th and ends December 7th every year.
Special Enrollment Period
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 to an area where your current plan is not covered. Talk to one of our licensed agents today to see if your special circumstance applies.
