Medicare open enrollment period — the time each year when you can purchase or make changes to a health insurance policy. If you already have a policy, your insurer might’ve sent you a letter or another notification that you need to take action during this period to maintain your coverage. And if you don’t have a policy yet, this is the time of year when you can sign up for one under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Open enrollment is one of the few annual opportunities you have to make changes to your health insurance policy. For some, open enrollment is a time of significant change. For others, it might just mean confirming a current policy is working well and carrying that same coverage into the following year. It’s a busy but important time of year, and there’s a lot you might need to take care of. To get started, learn more about what open enrollment is and how you can make the most of this annual opportunity.
