Time’s running out on enrollment for Medicare supplement insurance in Colorado

Date

A special enrollment period for older Coloradans to sign up for certain Medicare supplement insurance ends June 30.

The Colorado Division of Insurance opened up the six-month period after federal changes kept newly eligible people from purchasing some of the supplement policies, which are often sold by private companies to help with costs for copays, deductibles and other things that aren’t covered by original Medicare.

People that buy supplemental policies, called Medigap, can do so without having their health or risk evaluated in order to get a plan, said Vincent Plymell, assistant commissioner for the agency.

Here are the Medigap policies that can be purchased during the one-time enrollment period:

  • If a person has Medicare Supplement Policy Plan C, they may enroll in a Medicare Supplement Policy Plan D.
  • For people with Medicare Supplement Policy Plan F, Medicare Supplement Policy Plan G is available.
  • If a person has a high-deductible Medicare Supplement Policy Plan F, they may enroll in a Medicare Supplement Policy Plan G.

The state is offering counseling regarding these options and the enrollment period via the Colorado State Health Insurance Assistance Program or by calling 888-696-7213.
