Changing Your Medicare Plan

Is your Medicare plan still right for you? SHIIP counselors can help you compare plans and determine if a change is needed. 

Medicare Supplement Plans can be changed at any time. Our certified counselors can provide an estimate of premium costs for plans from all North Carolina companies and help you narrow down your choices.  You’ll need to contact the companies directly to get a final quote and apply.

If you are currently enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, during January – March, you can make a one-time change to a different Medicare Advantage Plan or to Original Medicare with a Part D Drug Plan.

Medicare Drug Plans can only be changed during Medicare’s Open Enrollment Period (October 15 to December 7) or if you meet the criteria for a Special Enrollment Period.
