Medicare health plans

UCHealth now accepts more Medicare Advantage plans than ever before. Many preventative screenings and immunizations are covered by Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage.

Initial enrollment period

When you’re first eligible for Medicare you have a 7-month period during which you may enroll. It begins three months before you turn 65, includes the month you turn 65, and ends three months after the month you turn 65.

If you miss this enrollment period you may pay more for some services, you may experience a gap in your health care coverage and/or your access to certain types of Medicare coverage could be restricted.

Special enrollment period

If you do not enroll in Medicare during your initial enrollment period, you may have the chance to sign up for Medicare during a special enrollment period. Life changes such as retirement, change in address or lost coverage may qualify you for a special enrollment period.

Annual election period

Medicare’s annual election period is from Oct. 15 – Dec. 7 each year. During this period, anyone with Medicare can change their Medicare health plan and/or prescription drug coverage for the following year to better meet their needs.

UCHealth has partnered with an independent insurance agency in order to help you understand your coverage options. Licensed insurance agents at eHealth are available to work directly with you to answer your questions about Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans, and find the best options for your health care needs.

There is no cost for this optional service and you do not have to enroll in a plan.
