Medicare Enrollment

Choose Worry-Free Health Care in The Villages®

You Have an Important Choice to Make

If you are Medicare Eligible, you have an important choice to make about Medicare and the primary care services you receive in this community. The Villages Health is a healthcare system specifically designed for your lifestyle, but when it comes to Medicare we only partner with a few Medicare Advantage plans.

We only accept Medicare Advantage because we care about the physical, emotional and financial needs of our patients. With Medicare Advantage, our patients stay healthier, experience less stress and save money on health care.

What is Medicare?

Medicare is a Federal Health Insurance Program that provides medical coverage. It consists of 4 different parts: A, B, C and D. It can get complicated, but to keeps things simple – think of it in terms of two choices: Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage.

When to Enroll in Medicare?

You may be eligible to enroll in Medicare during the following times:

65th Birthday

Initial enrollment in Medicare starts when you turn 65. At that time, you have 3 months before, during, and after your birthday month (for a total of 7 months) to make a decision.

Change of Address

When you move to a new address, you may be eligible to change your Medicare options within 62 days from the day you update your address with Social Security Administration.

Annual Enrollment

During Annual Enrollment, which is every year from October 15th through December 7th, you can modify your Medicare coverage.

*There may be other situations that allow you to change your enrollment. We recommend you speak with an insurance agent.

Having the nurse navigator come to our home and administer the care I needed once I left the hospital was very reassuring – especially to my wife who works full-time. It was beyond anything I have ever experienced before.
