Applying for Medicare Supplemental in Coffeyville
Enrollment for a Medicare Supplement plan differs from other Medicare plans and eligibility begins the month of your 65th birthday and continues five months afterward. You can not be denied coverage if you enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan within this six month initial enrollment period. However, late enrollment presents the possibility of denial of coverage as well as higher premium charges based on health or a wait for coverage based on pre-existing illnesses.
