Types of Medicare plans in the Buckeye State
With Medicare, one plan does not fit all. Because of this, it is possible to choose a plan that best meets your specific medical needs. Whether you need coverage for prescription drugs or home care, you can find a Medicare plan best suits you at an affordable rate.
Am I eligible for Medicare in Ohio?
Most Ohioans 65 or older and legal US residents are eligible for Medicare. Some Buckeyes under 65 with certain health conditions may be eligible as well. If you’ve qualified for Original Medicare (Parts A and B) and want extra benefits, you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan. The plans may have vision, dental, hearing and prescription drug coverage.
Because of the complexity of Medicare, you may find yourself still having questions if you’re eligible or not. Call today and a friendly, licensed agent can help with any and all of your Medicare eligibility questions.
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.
