Medicare Annual Election Period, also known as Medicare Open Enrollment, is here for the 2022 coverage year! This means patients can change Medicare Advantage plans or Medicare prescription drug plans. Enrollment changes become effective January 1, 2022.

Patients can save money on out-of-pocket healthcare costs by making sure medical providers are in-network with the assigned or selected insurance plan. See a complete list of Medicare Advantage plans currently accepted by CHAS Health below. CHAS Health also accepts traditional Medicare.
