Is Open Enrollment Same as Medicare?

By on | No Comments

Question: Is the open enrollment period the same for Covered California and Medicare?

Answer: No. They are not the same, although there is some overlap in the enrollment periods. The Medicare open enrollment period runs from October 15 through December 7 each year. For Covered California, the open enrollment period will run from November 1, 2016 through January 31, 2017. If you are covered by Medicare, and you are interested in reviewing and comparing your Medicare coverage options, make sure the plans you are considering during the open enrollment period are Medicare plans, not Covered California plans. Medicare plans are not sold through the Covered California websites.
