Medicare Advantage
District of Columbia County
District of Columbia

Enrollment Period for Medicare Advantage plans for January 1, 2011 coverage is from November 15, 2010, to December 31, 2010.  Please remember to enroll in time for processing if you want coverage to begin January 1, 2011.

From January 1, 2011 to February 14, 2011, you may switch from Medicare Advantage to Original Medicare but not from one Medicare Advantage plan to another Medicare Advantage plan and not from Original Medicare to Medicare Advantage.

Annual Election Period for Medicare Advantage in 2011 is between October 15, 2011, and December 7, 2011, for coverage beginning January 1, 2012.

Medicare Advantage plans must offer at least the same level of benefits as Original Medicare.  Visit the Medicare Advantage websites and telephone the Medicare Advantage insurance companies to compare plans and coverages for basic dental, annual checkups, prescription drug and prescription drug gap coverage, hospitalization, screenings, and other benefits offered above Original Medicare.
