Health Care Reform and Medicare: FAQ

Answers to your questions about how health care reform affects Medicare.

Q: If I move to a new state, how do I switch my Medicare Advantage plan outside of the open enrollment period?

A: You can qualify, for various reasons, to make changes during what’s considered a special enrollment period for qualifying events, or major life changes. If you move to a new geographic location, that counts as a qualifying event.

Again, your SHIP is a great place to go for information about how to switch plans. And the Center for Medicare Advocacy’s web site and Medicare.gov both offer information about special enrollment periods.
