Planning for Medicare

While most people associate Medicare with turning 65, the truth is you can enroll before your 65th birthday.  It’s important to plan ahead, so you’ll know when and how to get started.

Clear path to enrollment

You can sign up for Medicare Advantage (Parts C and D) as soon as you become eligible for Medicare, or during Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), Oct. 15 – Dec. 7.

If you qualify to enroll outside the AEP, you can shop our plans online, or call 800-482-8163 (TDD: 711) to speak with a Geisinger Gold Medicare Advisor.

If you do not have a “qualifying event” (see above), you’ll be eligible to switch during Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), from October 15 to December 7.

We offer plans designed to fit your needs and your budget. Learn more reasons to choose Geisinger Gold.
