You're New to Maine. Did You Know Your Medicare Coverage May Not Travel With You?

Thu, 09/10/2020 - 6:15am

Original Medicare, Parts A & B, travel with you, no matter where you go in the U.S.

On the other hand, Medicare Part C (advantage plans) and Medicare Part D (drug plans) don’t travel so well – you will want to make sure your plans will work for you in your new service area.

If you have moved from one state to another,  you are eligible for what the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) calls a Special Election Period. This SEP typically lasts two months but we recommend quick action to be sure costs you incur are covered when you need them to be.
