How to decide between traditional and Medicare Advantage coverage
Trying to decide what coverage is best for you? One of the first things you’ll need to do is consider what coverage suits your needs. Is it ‘traditional Medicare’ (Parts A and B) or Medicare Advantage (Part C)?
When you enroll in Medicare for the first time, if you do nothing, you’ll automatically be signed up for traditional Medicare.
Wondering whether you can decide to switch to another coverage option, like a Medicare Advantage plan, after your IEP? Yes you can, during the Annual Enrollment Period that runs from October 15 to December 7 every year.
