Medicare Annual Enrollment Period (AEP)

When is AEP and why is it important?

The Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) runs from October 15-December 7 each year. During this time, millions of Medicare recipients evaluate their current coverage and make changes that are oftentimes more affordable or provide more accurate coverage. AEP is sometimes referred to as the Medicare Fall Open Enrollment and the Annual Election Period.

If you’re satisfied with your current Medicare plan, there’s no requirement to take any action during AEP. However, Medicare plan details can change annually, so it’s a good idea to compare your plan options each fall to confirm your health and prescription drug needs are covered for the coming year. Even if you’re happy with your current Medicare plan, considering the following:

  • You may be missing out on benefits you deserve. Some plans may include benefits like dental, vision, hearing coverage, and prescription drug coverage and transportation to appointments.
  • Make sure you’re not overpaying. Lower premium plans may be available in your area.
  • There may be changes to your existing plan that you need to be aware of, or there may be new or updated plans that better meet your needs and budget.
