Guaranteed Issue Rights

Sometimes when you apply for Medicare supplement coverage, you don’t answer any questions about your health and your policy is guaranteed issue. These situations include when:*

  • You’re in your Medicare open enrollment period
  • You or your Medicare Advantage/Private Fee for Service plan move out of the service area
  • Your employer discontinues its group retiree health coverage
  • You leave a Medicare Advantage plan within a year of joining and return to Medicare
