Medicare Special Enrollment Extended for Qualified Floridians

According to our trusted HealthShare360 Medicare experts, if you live in an area that was impacted by Hurricane Ian and this prevented you from taking action, such as enrolling in a plan or making changes to your current plan, over the Annual Enrollment Period (Oct 15 – Dec 7), you may qualify for a Special Election Period (SEP). The SEP has been extended until May 31.  

Eligibility: any beneficiary who resides or resided at the start of the incident in Florida, or beneficiaries who don’t live in FL but receive assistance making healthcare decision from someone who lives in FL  

Enrollments received are effective the first day of the following month.  

To determine if you’re eligible for this Special Election Period, contact our Medicare Patient Advocate Olivia Pierrelouis at or 866.674.6880. For more information on your Medicare options, contact our trusted partners at HealthShare360 at or call 239.744.7600.
