October 15th- December 7th: Medicare Open Enrollment Period (OEP). This is one time of year you can make changes to your Medicare Advantage and or Part D Prescription Drug plans for a January 1st effective date.

January 1st – February 14th: Annual Disenrollment Period (ADP). During this time, you can drop a Medicare Advantage to return to Original Medicare. Part D Prescription Drug plans may be purchased if a drug plan was part of the dropped Medicare Advantage plan.
