Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans complement Original Medicare. If you’re eligible for Medicare, you’re also eligible for a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan.

If you’re at least 65 years old, you are eligible if you are:

  • Enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B, and
  • A resident of Montana.

If you are under 65 and disabled, you are eligible to apply once you have been informed of your eligibility for Medicare by disability.

Enrollment Periods

You can enroll in a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan during the six-month open enrollment period that starts once you’re 65 and have Medicare Part B. This six-month open enrollment period is the best time to enroll because it’s the only time when enrollment is guaranteed. If you want a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan after the open enrollment period, you may have to meet certain requirements and could pay more for the plan.

Guaranteed Eligibility

As long as you are 65 or older, have Medicare Part A and are within the six months following your enrollment for Medicare Part B, your acceptance is guaranteed. If you are under 65, have Medicare Part A and are enrolled in Medicare Part B, your acceptance is guaranteed within six months of your Part B effective date or another qualifying event. If you are on Medicare under age 65, you will also have a six-month open enrollment period when you reach age 65. If you are turning age 65, were previously enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B, and apply within six months of turning 65, your acceptance is guaranteed.
