Enroll in CarePlus during the 5-Star Special Election Period (SEP)

CarePlus is rated an overall 5 out of 5 stars for 2019 by Medicare, the highest possible overall rating based on plan quality and performance. Eligible beneficiaries have an opportunity to switch or enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan (MA), Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan (MA-PD) or a stand-alone Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) with a plan performance overall rating of 5-stars. This SEP may only be used one time from December 8, 2018 through November 30, 2019 provided you meet the plan’s enrollment requirements (e.g., living within the service area as well as requirements regarding end-stage renal disease). The enrollment effective date in the 5-Star plan is the first of the month following the month in which the plan receives the enrollment request.
