If you’ve moved, or are planning to move, your plan may be affected.
Moving can affect your Medicare coverage. In some cases you may qualify for a Medicare Special Enrollment Period. These include:
- A move to an area that isn’t in your current Medicare Advantage plan’s service area
- A move within your current plan’s service area that opens up new plan options
- A move back to the United States after living abroad
- A move into or out of a facility

Frequently asked questions
If I had Medicare previously and recently moved, am I covered?
Depending on your plan, the Medicare Advantage plan may not follow you to a new city, county, or state, so it is important to check the status of your plan and re-enroll, if necessary.
When should I enroll in Medicare Advantage?
If you had coverage through a Medicare Advantage plan before you moved and have notified your plan, your Special Enrollment Period timeframe begins one month before you move and lasts for two months after your move.
If you don’t notify your plan until after you move, you can switch plans the month you provided notice of the move and up to two months after.
