When Should I Apply For A Medicare Supplement Policy?

When you elect coverage under Medicare Part B either due to age or disability, you have a 6­month open enrollment for a Medicare supplement policy, which guarantees you coverage with a plan and company of your choice. You may choose from the 10 standardized plans (A­J). If you do not purchase a plan within your 6­month open enrollment, any company you apply with can deny coverage based on your health conditions.  There are some limited additional open enrollments periods available to some persons dis­enrolling from a Medicare HMO.  Please contact MDI about these.
