Medicare Reminder
The Medicare Advantage Disenrollment Period (MADP) occurs every year from January 1 to February 14. During this time, you can switch from your Medicare private health plan, also known as a Medicare Advantage plan, to Original Medicare.

If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, you will be able to switch to Original Medicare with or without a stand-alone prescription drug plan. Changes made during this period will become effective the first of the following month. For example, if you switched from a Medicare Advantage plan to Original Medicare and a stand-alone prescription drug plan in February, your new coverage would begin March 1.

If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, and have a separate, stand-alone drug plan, you must keep your stand-alone prescription drug plan when you switch to Original Medicare during the MADP.

If you disenroll from your Medicare Advantage plan, federal law does not usually give you the right to buy a Medigap plan. Medigap plans are supplemental polices that help pay for Original Medicare's deductibles and coinsurances. You can check with your Medicare Coordinator at ServiceLink to find out more about the Medigap plans sold in New Hampshire.
