Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

To switch plans, you should usually enroll in your new plan without disenrolling from your old plan. Enroll early during an enrollment period to make sure that your new coverage starts when it should. It is best to enroll into your new plan by calling 1-800-MEDICARE, rather than the new plan. You will be automatically disenrolled from your previous Medicare drug plan when your new coverage starts.

In most cases, you will only be able to change your Medicare prescription drug plan once a year during Fall Open Enrollment. Fall Open Enrollment occurs between October 15 and December 7 of every year. If you make a change during this time, your new coverage will begin January 1. You can change plans as many times as you need during Fall Open Enrollment, with your last choice taking effect January 1. However, to avoid enrollment problems, it is best to make as few changes as possible.

You may also be able to change your Part D plan during the Medicare Advantage DisenrollmentPeriod (MADP) if you have a Medicare Advantage Plan. The MADP occurs every year, from January 1 to February 14.

Thank you and best regards,
