If you’ve moved, or are planning to move, your plan may be affected.
Moving can affect your Medicare coverage. In some cases you may qualify for a Medicare Special Enrollment Period. These include:
- A move to an area that isn’t in your current Medicare Advantage plan’s service area
- A move within your current plan’s service area that opens up new plan options
- A move back to the United States after living abroad
- A move into or out of a facility

Frequently asked questions
If I had Medicare previously and recently moved, am I covered?
Depending on your plan, the Medicare Advantage plan may not follow you to a new city, county, or state, so it is important to check the status of your plan and re-enroll, if necessary.
When should I enroll in Medicare Advantage?
If you had coverage through a Medicare Advantage plan before you moved and have notified your plan, your Special Enrollment Period timeframe begins one month before you move and lasts for two months after your move.
