If you have recently moved, it may affect your Medicare.
You can make changes to your Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug coverage when certain events happen in your life, like if you move or you lose other insurance coverage. These chances to make changes are called Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs). Rules about when you can make changes and the type of changes you can make are different for each SEP.
These are the current rules in regards to changes where you live.
- I moved to a new address that isn’t in my plan’s service area.
- I moved to a new address that’s still in my plan’s service area, but I have new plan options in my new location.
- I moved back to the U.S. after living outside the country.
- I just moved into, currently live in, or just moved out of an institution (like a skilled nursing facility or long-term care hospital).
- I’m released from jail.
