Medicare Advantage Eligibility Requirements: Are You Eligible?
There are only three requirements to becoming a KelseyCare Advantage member. You should:
- Already be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B
- Live within the plan's geographical service area
- You are a United States citizen or are lawfully present in the United States
When Can You Enroll?
Most people are automatically enrolled in Original (also called Traditional) Medicare (Parts A and B) when they turn 65 years of age. When you’re eligible to enroll in Original Medicare, you also become eligible to enroll in a Medicare Advantage (Part C) plan.
If you aren’t automatically enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B, you must first contact Medicare to enroll in Parts A and B before being eligible for enrollment in a Medicare Advantage plan like KelseyCare Advantage.
You can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan when you’re new to Medicare (seven-month period), when you retire and lose group coverage, or during a designated Medicare election period like the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15 through December 7).
