Common Medicare Open Enrollment Notices
You can make changes to your Medicare coverage each year during Fall Open Enrollment, which runs October 15 to December 7. Around September, you will start to receive notices with information about any changes to your coverage for the coming year. Read these notices so you can decide if your coverage will continue to meet your needs or if you should change it.
Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) and Evidence of Coverage (EOC)
Sent to people who have a Medicare Advantage Plan or Part D plan
- Notices include any changes to your plan in 2022
- Look for any changes to:
- The plan’s provider
- The plan’s costs
- The plan’s formulary (list of covered drugs)
Plan Non-Renewal Notice
You receive this notice in October if you are enrolled in a plan that is leaving the Medicare program in the coming year. You should enroll in a new plan during Fall Open Enrollment. If you do not enroll in a new plan at this time, you will also have until the last day in February 2022 to enroll in a new plan.
Consistent Poor Performance Notice
You receive this notice in late October if you are enrolled in a plan that has received a low rating for three or more years in a row. A low rating is three stars or fewer out of five. This notice encourages you to look at other plan options in your area.
