For the first time, this year you could change your Medicare Advantage coverage outside of the open enrollment period.
But if you wanted to change back to Traditional Medicare, you wouldn’t be able to buy a Medicare supplement. You can only purchase those towards the end of the year.
Apparently, a large number of seniors didn’t realize this and they’re now stuck paying a significant part of their healthcare costs for the rest of the calendar year.
Don’t be one of them. Don’t be fooled by the new “freedom” of the Medicare Advantage sign-up rules.
Do everything through your own insurance home.
Medicare and Medicare Advantage has become too complex to use any other approach.
