When there is a problem with a plan which directly affects me, Medicare has an action it takes called a “Sanction.” Switching to another plan is something you can do, switching to a plan other than your Medicare Prescription Drug Plan as well as your Medicare Advantage Plan. Switching is only determined by Medicare and is done based on case by case conditions.
Terminated plans of your contract, then you can switch to another plan. This can be done two months prior and 1 month, that is a full month after the end of the contract.
Plans not renewed, Medicare contracts not renewed. Example your Medicare Cost Plans, Advantage Plans, or Medicare Prescription Drug Plans. You would then join a different Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Prescription Drug Plan. This can be done December 8 — the last day in February.
