In prior years, an early SEP permitted agents to accept enrollments in October. However, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued new MA Enrollment Guidance. In order to provide sufficient time for members to evaluate their options, the SEP begins December 8, 2011 and ends on February 29, 2012.
Please note the following effective dates:
- Enrollment requests received from December 8 through December 31, 2011 will have an effective date of January 1, 2012.
- Enrollment requests received in January will have an effective date of February 1, 2012.
- Enrollment requests received in February will have an effective date of March 1, 2012.
