If you're currently entitled to Medicare Part A and/or enrolled in Medicare Part B, permanently reside in Wisconsin, and you are a U.S. citizen or are lawfully present in the United States, you can sign up during the Annual Enrollment Period that runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. Your WPS MedicareRx Plan (PDP) coverage will begin Jan. 1.
If you are eligible, but miss the Dec. 7 deadline, you may have to wait until the next Annual Enrollment Period to join a plan. Also, unless you have creditable prescription drug coverage—coverage that is at least as good as the standard Medicare prescription drug coverage—you may receive a late enrollment penalty.
For more information, give us a call or contact your local WPS insurance agent.
