Two Medicare Enrollment Periods Open Through March 31 is accepting enrollment for individuals eligible for Parts A (Hospital Insurance) & B (Medical Insurance). Individuals who have a Medicare Advantage plan may also use this time period to switch back to Original Medicare, or to change to a different Medicare Advantage plan. You can only join, switch, or drop a plan at certain times. These times are called enrollment periods.

Ohioans on Medicare that did not sign up for Part A and or Part B during their initial enrollment period, and do not qualify for a special enrollment period, can sign up for Medicare during the January 1 through March 31 general enrollment period. Coverage begins on the first day of the month after signing up.

For Ohioans with a Medicare Advantage Plan, the Medicare Advantage open enrollment period, also from January 1 through March 31, provides an opportunity to switch back to Original Medicare or change to a different Medicare Advantage plan.
