Medigap Open Enrollment Period
During the Medigap OEP, you are allowed to purchase any Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan available where you live. The enrollment period spans the first six months after you enroll in Medicare Part B once you are age 65 or over. This is an important period of time because during it, insurers cannot refuse to sell you a plan or charge a higher premium because of your current health status or medical history.
