What if I submitted enrollment to more than one Medicare Advantage plan?

No one is allowed to be enrolled in more than one Medicare Advantage plan at a time. If you have submitted enrollment to two or more Medicare Advantage plans, it is important to determine which plan you wish to be enrolled in. This should be done immediately. It is not advisable to wait until you hear from a plan or insurance company you have submitted enrollment to before canceling an enrollment request. You should not have simultaneous Medicare Advantage enrollment requests with the same effective date because you cannot be enrolled in two Medicare Advantage plans simultaneously.

If you have submitted simultaneous enrollment requests, you are in danger of having all enrollment requests canceled if you do not cancel the enrollments you do not want. Under no circumstances can you be enrolled in more than one Medicare Advantage plan at the same time, and if all your enrollment requests are canceled due to multiple enrollment submissions, you may not be able to get the coverage you need when you need it. To avoid any possible complications, it is important to request enrollment in only one Medicare Advantage plan at a time.

Can I enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan and a Medicare supplement plan at the same time?

Again, the answer is no. Medicare Advantage replaces Original Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B. Medicare supplement plans, meanwhile, are designed to supplement Original Medicare coverage, which you have given up if you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan. You cannot be enrolled in Medicare Advantage and Medigap at the same time, so you should carefully determine whether submitting enrollment for Medicare Advantage or Medigap is in your best interest.

Both options provide excellent opportunities for drug coverage. Most Medicare Advantage plans include prescription drug coverage, and excellent but inexpensive prescription drug plans are available to complement Medicare supplement plans.
