5-Star SEP in effect NOW!
Questions about Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs)?
By now, you’ve heard the news that all of our 2022 Medicare Advantage plans were rated 5-out-of-5 Stars by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Being a 5-Star plan comes with many advantages, including the ability to enroll members into our Medicare Advantage plans year-round, through an additional special election period (SEP).
- We are in the process of updating our applications on all platforms. However, until further notice, the existing enrollment process and application remain the same.
- The application will be processed regardless of which SEP is chosen on the enrollment form based on the SEP that is available to them.
- An individual may use this SEP once between 12/8/2021 – 11/30/2022. That means we’re still accepting enrollments through the end of the year for January 1!
- Coverage begins the month following the member’s enrollment.
Please read this Q&A that answers some commonly asked questions around the 5-Star SEP. We’ll be sharing more information after the New Year.
For now, please help us spread the word that it’s not too late to choose Blue!
