This is the time when you can switch to a Medicare Advantage plan, switch between Advantage plans, switch back to original Medicare, and change Drug plans.

The actual duration of the Annual Enrollment Period is just under two months and runs from Oct. 15th through Dec. 7th. To avoid any unforeseen delays, it is advised not to wait until the last minute to make any changes.

It is important to occasionally review your current health coverages to make sure they are still meeting all of your needs. Since the healthcare system is constantly changing, it is always good practice to stay informed on any recent changes or updates that may have an effect on you and your coverage.

There are going to be new carriers coming into Nevada and quite a few new and exciting plans that will be offered for the next plan year 2022! As an agent, I can help you sort through the complexities and confusion surrounding the Medicare market.
