Medicare Part D Enrollment Reminders

there is a convenient, stress-free way to ensure you don’t miss your appropriate enrollment period. Through a
fast, simple sign-up, you can get enrollment reminders that will alert you as you near Medicare Part D
It’s smart to prepare for enrollment in a Medicare Part D plan early so you feel comfortable and confident
when you are eligible to enroll. Depending on your circumstances, you can enroll during one of these
three enrollment periods: the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), which runs from October 15 through
December 7 each year; the Initial Enrollment Period (IEP), which is the three calendar months before
your 65th birthday, the month of your birthday and three months following your 65th birthday; or a
Special Enrollment Period (SEP). Note that there is an exception if your birthday falls on the
first day of any month; your 7-month Initial Enrollment Period begins and ends one month sooner.
If you’re under 65 you are eligible to enroll in Medicare if you have a qualifying disability and
receive a Social Security disability benefit. You will have a 7-month enrollment window that starts
3 months before your 25th month of receiving Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board disability
benefits and ends 3 months after your 25th month of getting disability benefits.
Life can get hectic at times. It’s easy to forget something like enrolling in a Medicare Part D plan
when you’ve got so many other things on your plate. Missing your appropriate enrollment time, however,
can lead to a Part D Late Enrollment Penalty (LEP). This penalty is added on to your monthly premium for
the length of time you have a Medicare Part D plan. Signing up for enrollment reminders can help you enroll on time and avoid a late enrollment penalty.
