You May Qualify for a Medicare Enrollment Extension

Now More Than Ever Make Your Health the Priority

Good news! Medicare has announced a Special Enrollment Opportunity to give those of us affected by the storm more time to make some important decisions about our health coverage options. Medicare Open Enrollment ended December 7, but you may still have the chance to make changes to your Medicare coverage for 2023.

Following this hurricane season, millions of Floridians are currently facing uncertainty and some are experiencing new health problems. Due to these exceptional circumstances, Medicare has established a Special Enrollment Opportunity for seniors living in any of the Florida counties declared a disaster area.

This enrollment extension could run as late as March 31, 2023 - depending on your county and storm, and changes you make will be effective the first of the month after the plan receives your enrollment request. To determine if you’re included in this special Medicare enrollment opportunity, you can contact 1-800-Medicare 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with any questions.

You may have other things on your mind, but your health is the priority, and staying healthy starts with the right healthcare coverage. Your healthcare needs may have changed, so don’t miss this important opportunity to make sure your Medicare coverage matches your changing needs.
