Enrolling & Switching Plans

Enrolling in Medicare can be confusing. This information can help make moving to Medicare a little easier.

We want you to have the right insurance so you get the right healthcare

Although we are not an insurance company or agent, we can help guide you in selecting a Medicare plan that meets your needs.

Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 and older, and certain younger people with disabilities or end-stage renal disease. Most people will enroll in Medicare around their 65th birthday. This is called your “Initial Enrollment Period.” It spans your birth month, plus the three months before and after.

You enroll for Medicare through a local Social Security Office.

For help understanding the steps to take, and when — as there are penalties for late enrollment — feel free to call us at 702-623-9213.

Turning 65?

  • Whether you’re ready to retire or still on the job, it’s time to explore your Medicare options.

Did you recently relocate?

  • A recent move, even from a different county, may mean you need to change your Medicare Advantage plan.

Do you have chronic conditions?

  • If you are affected by one of the following conditions, you may be eligible for Medicare coverage even if you are under 65 years of age:
    • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
    • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
    • Diabetes
    • End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)

Visit the Medicare website for a current list of conditions that may qualify you for a Medicare Chronic Condition Special Needs Plan by clicking here. Medicare Chronic Condition Special Needs Plans are specially tailored to provide eligible individuals with access to qualified specialists prepared to meet their unique needs, provide clinical case management programs, and a host of other tailored benefits — like personalized nutritional guidance and care coordination services.

In addition, some Medicare Chronic Condition Special Needs Plans feature benefits that help you save money on the care necessary to manage your chronic condition. This includes coverage for your prescription drugs.

If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you may also make certain changes during the annual Open Enrollment Period (OEP). Intermountain Health wants to help you understand your options during this time, which occurs January 1 through March 31.

During the OEP, you may make these changes:

  • Switch to another Medicare Advantage plan (with or without drug coverage)
  • Dis-enroll from your Medicare Advantage plan and return to Original Medicare

You may not make the following changes:

  • Switch from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan
  • Join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan if you’re on Original Medicare

You can only make one change during this period. Changes will take effect the first of the month after the plan receives your request.
