How do I Enroll in a Special Needs Plan?

How do I Enroll in a Special Needs Plan

Before enrolling you must have Medicare Part A and Part B. You will continue to pay for your Part B. All plans will have deductibles, copay and maximum out of pocket costs. For Dual Eligible plans, Medicaid will pick up most of your costs. These plans are specifically designed for individual groups so you have to qualify.

Enrollment periods for these plans include all the enrollment periods that Medicare Advantages plans have. Special Enrollment periods include:

  • Qualifying for Medicaid: Once you qualify for Medicaid you qualify for a special enrollment period
  • Being diagnosed with a chronic condition: If your chronic condition falls under the guideline you will qualify for a special enrollment period
  • If you move in or move out of an institution: This qualifies for a special enrollment period

If you lose your eligibility state, you will qualify for a special election period and you will be able to join another plan or return to Original Medicare and get a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plan.

Meet Melissa MacCalla

Medicare is not simple and can be hard, frustrating, and downright confusing for most. I love when I get someone on the phone and I am given the opportunity to explain the difference in plans to them and have Medicare make sense. I enjoy talking to clients year after year, hearing about their families growing or them asking about mine.
