Abstract

You have a six-month open enrollment period when you are enrolled in Medicare Part B for the first time at age 65 or older. The six-month period begins the date your Medicare Part B begins. During your open enrollment period: • You cannot be turned down for any plan (A-L) being sold in Iowa. • You cannot be charged a higher premium based on your health. • You will not have a waiting period before benefits are paid for pre-existing health conditions IF you had previous health insurance coverage, AND you apply within 63 days of the end of previous health insurance, AND you were covered for at least 6 months under that health plan.
