    Am I eligible for Medicare Supplement?

    Once you are 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B, you can apply for a Medicare Supplement insurance policy. Medicare Supplement insurance plans may also be available to you in some states if you’re younger than age 65 and eligible for Medicare due to disability.

    When can you enroll in Medicare Supplement?

    This short video explains how Medicare Supplement enrollment works, how you may qualify, and when open enrollment begins and ends. (Length: 00:01:45)
    Watch Video

    When can I apply?

    You can apply for a Medicare Supplement policy any time. During your open enrollment period, you are guaranteed Medicare Supplement coverage. When applying outside of your open enrollment period, there may be limits based on your previous health history or medical conditions and you could be denied acceptance.

    Medicare Supplement open enrollment is a 6-month period during which you can buy any Medicare supplement policy sold in your state, even if you have pre-existing health conditions—you cannot be denied coverage during this period. This starts on the first day of the month after:

    • You're 65 (or older) and
    • You’re enrolled in Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)

    You may have additional guaranteed issue enrollment periods in your state.

    Retiring at 65?

    Say you turn 65 on September 9. You’ve applied for Medicare Part B, and your coverage is scheduled to start on September 1. Your open enrollment period for Medicare Supplement insurance would start on September 1, as soon as your Medicare Part B kicks in.

    Not retiring until later?

    Say you’ve already turned 65, but you’re still working and receiving health care insurance through your employer. At age 68, you decide to retire and enroll in Medicare Part B because you no longer have insurance through your employer. Your open enrollment period for Medicare Supplement insurance would begin the first day of the month your Medicare Part B insurance becomes effective.

    When can I switch plans?

    You can choose a Medicare Supplement plan from a different company at any time after your open enrollment period. Because the government decides what benefits each Medicare Supplement plan offers, you can change companies and still keep the same plan. This includes the same basic benefits you have now with your current Medicare Supplement plan.*

    *Plans may be subject to medical underwriting, and coverage may be denied.

    Questions about special situations?

    You may have questions about specific situations, such as disability or existing health conditions. Contact us at for more information about your eligibility or when to enroll.
