During open enrollment, you never have to answer medical questions about your health. Insurers are required to sell you a Medicare Supplemental Insurance Plan regardless of any pre-existing health problem you currently have, or have had in the past.
Open enrollment will start on the first day of the month in which you are BOTH at least 65 AND you are enrolled in Medicare Part B. Your open enrollment period only lasts for six months, so it’s a good idea to learn about Medicare Supplemental Insurance before open enrollment, and be ready to apply.
Besides deciding which of the Medigap Plan A through Medigap plan N will provide the coverage you want, you also need to find the insurer licensed to sell that plan in your state at the best price available. Insurers are not required to sell every plan, and insurers can sell the same Plan F, for example, at different prices.
