How to change your Medicare or Medigap plan?
You can change the Medigap plan within the first 30 days of enrolling in it, in case you are not happy with it. It is not recommended to stop the first Medigap plan without enrolling in the new Medigap plan. However, you will be able to return to your old Medigap plan if you do not like the new Medigap plan. You can change your Medicare advantage to the Orginal Medicare during the Medicare Advantage dis-enrollment period.
You can also make changes in your plan during the open enrollment period, which is from 15 October to 7 December. This includes changing from the original Medicare plan to the Medicare Advantage plan, switching from one Medicare Advantage plan to another, or switching from one Part D plan to another Part D plan.
