Medicare Advantage vs. Original Medicare with Medigap: New Jersey Full Coverage Choices
A Medicare Advantage plan is one option for full coverage health insurance, but you have a second option that works with your Original Medicare. You can keep your Part A and Part B coverage and supplement it with a Medigap policy and a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan. If you’re not familiar with Medigap policies in New Jersey, and how they pay your deductibles, co-insurances and co-pays, read our Medicare Supplement page. All Medigap plans available in New Jersey are standardized. That means a Plan F, as an example, has the same benefits from every company that sells it. The only difference is the monthly premium
Medicare Advantage Enrollment in New Jersey
If you want to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan available in New Jersey, you can do so during an enrollment period. New Jersey seniors turning 65, and those with Medicare Disability, have an Individual Enrollment Period (IEP). Your IEP starts two months before you are eligible and ends two months after eligibility. After that you must enroll or make changes to your plan during the Annual Election Period (AEP), more commonly known as open enrollment. AEP starts 15 October and ends promptly on 7 December.
Enrollment itself is quite easy. Most people in New Jersey use an independent Medicare insurance agent. Your agent is a licensed expert who knows the details of all of the plans available in your area. They get paid to find the best plan for you, and they are restricted by law from using selling and marketing tactics deems unethical by CMS. The second way to sign up is to go directly to the Medicare.gov website or call the Medicare.gov hotline. Click here to get started.
