When is the Annual Election Period for Medicare plans?



The Annual Election Period (AEP), runs from October 15th to December 7th each year, and it allows Medicare beneficiaries to make changes to their plan, switch plans, or disenroll from a plan.


Effective dates for Medicare policies written during this time frame are the 1st of the following year. These plans are governed by CMS and are typically Medicare Advantage and Part D plans.
