How does enrolling on Enroll Hero work?
To begin, you will need to enroll in Medicare parts A & B through Social Security. We can help you to understand what you need to do, because there is so much information out there.
Once this is complete, you enter some basic information to get a quote to see what plans are available to you. Then you can compare plans so you can find the best health coverage for you based on our Total Cost estimation. The final step is enrollment. Enroll Hero is contracted with all of the major health insurance companies to sign you up.
After submitting your application through Enroll Hero, you’ll receive a confirmation email with your plan information, as well as any further necessary steps, such as signing the application and making a payment.
What type of plans does Enroll Hero offer?
Enroll Hero shows all Medicare plans available, including Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans. This means you can shop and compare all plans available in your area. Plus, we offer dental and vision.
What happens after I am enrolled?
Once you’re enrolled, you should receive a confirmation email with your signed application from Enroll Hero. You will receive confirmation from the health insurance companies 2 weeks after your application.
What do I need to do after I’m enrolled?
You must make your monthly premium payments for both Medicare Part B and any monthly premiums for your health insurance plans, or you risk losing your coverage. You can also get your premiums deducted from your Social Security checks, but this may take a couple of months to get fully set up.
Can I set up payment options with Enroll Hero?
No, we don’t deal directly with the payments. You would either get the monthly coupons to pay yourself, deduct from Social Security, or pay via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).
Am I qualified to enroll right now?
You can enroll in any plan if you are in your Initial Enrollment Period, which starts 3 months before your 65th birthday and ends 3 months after,
If you are already on Medicare you can enroll in any Medicare Advantage plan or Prescription Drug Plan during the annual Open Enrollment Period. The Open Enrollment Period is October 15th – December 7. If you are on a Medicare Supplement plan, you can change your plan at any time, but with health underwriting, or for the 30 days after your birthday without health underwriting. Health underwriting is a series of questions about your health which can be used to accept or deny your application.
Otherwise, there’s a Special Enrollment Period for people who have experienced a major life event. This includes retirement and losing your employer health insurance, moving, etc.
