When does the Annual Election Period for Medicare end?
The Annual Election Period, or AEP (also known as Open Enrollment) for 2018 ends on December 7th. That is the final day for submitting applications for coverage to start on January 1, 2018.
If you miss this deadline, and you are already on Medicare, you will not be dropped from your current coverage. You will automatically be renewed in your present plan in most cases. The exception would be for discontinued plans, in which case your insurance carrier will move you directly into the designated replacement.
It’s always a good idea to review your plan each year to make sure you will have access to your doctors in your plan, and coverage for your medications.
