(4) Open enrollment period for institutionalized individuals. After 2005, an individual who is eligible to elect an MA plan and who is institutionalized, as defined in § 422.2, is not limited (except as provided for in paragraph (d) of this section for MA MSA plans) in the number of elections or changes he or she may make. Subject to the MA plan being open to enrollees as provided under § 422.60(a)(2), an MA eligible institutionalized individual may at any time elect an MA plan or change his or her election from an MA plan to Original Medicare, to a different MA plan, or from original Medicare to an MA plan.

The “depends” part of my answer is linked to the size of your employer. If your employer has fewer than 20 employees and you are 65 or older, Medicare usually assumes what is called the “first payer” role. This means that you would need to sign up for Medicare. It would be your primary insurance and your employer plan would provide secondary coverage, kicking in where Medicare did not provide coverage. Your employer should be able to provide you more information on whether you need to do this and how to do so. Even at employers with fewer than 20 employers, there is an “it depends” aspect to this answer. Your employer may have pooled its coverage with other companies to form what’s called a multi-employer plan. This would permit you to avoid filing for Medicare when you turn 65. There are other “it depends” details here.
They also can’t take your current health or medical history into account. All health plans must cover treatment for pre-existing conditions from the day coverage starts.

Trump’s Snub of McCain Isn’t Just Indecent End Signature End Supplemental Information INVESTING RESOURCES Family Events Medicare Advantage (Part C) Look for changes in your existing plan. If you're already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, your insurer will likely send you information soon regarding 2018 plan details. Read this carefully. "Just because a plan works for you this year doesn't mean it will necessarily work for you next year." warned David Lipschutz, an attorney at the Center for Medicare Advocacy. Many insurers change their cost-sharing, premiums and prescription drug formularies (the list of drugs covered by the plan) each year, Lipschutz explained. Look closely at any changes your plan is implementing and compare that to other plans available in your area. Existing Medicare enrollees and first-time shoppers can compare Medicare Advantage plans and traditional Medicare on Medicare.gov.

There is precedent for such a risk based approach. For instance, consistent with § 424.518, A/B MACs are required to screen applications for enrollment in accordance with a CMS assessment of risk and assignment to a level of “limited,” “moderate,” or “high.” Applications submitted by provider and supplier types that have historically posed higher risks to the Medicare program are subjected to a more rigorous screening and review process than those that present limited risks. Moreover, § 424.518 states that providers and suppliers that have had certain adverse actions imposed against them, such as felony convictions or revocations of enrollment, are placed into the highest and most rigorous screening level. We recognize that the risk based approach in § 424.518 applies to enrollment application screening rather than payment denials. However, we believe that using a risk-based approach would enable CMS to focus on prescribers who pose threats to the Medicare program and its beneficiaries, while minimizing the burden on those who do not. The process we envision and propose, which would replace the prescriber enrollment requirement outlined in § 423.120(c)(6) with a claims payment-oriented approach, would consist of the following components:
What Medicare Covers (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) Once the scaled reduction for a contract is determined using this methodology, the reduction would be applied to the contract's associated appeals measure-level Star Ratings. The minimum measure-level Star Rating is 1 star. If the difference between the associated appeals measure-level Star Rating (before the application of the reduction) and the identified scaled reduction is less than one, the contract would receive a measure-level Star Rating of 1 star for the appeals measure.
