Medicare Solutions

PDP Application Clarification

There has been some recent confusion on whether the “Information to Determine Enrollment Periods” section on the Mutual of Omaha Rx (PDP) enrollment form should be completed if the beneficiary is enrolling during the Annual Enrollment Period. The answer is “no”. The information (check-boxes) that appear on page 18 of the PDP pre-enrollment kit are only used to determine Special Enrollment Periods.

Special Enrollment Periods (SEP) are defined by CMS and are generally based on life events. For example, involuntary loss of credible coverage, becoming eligible or no longer eligible for Medicaid, moving into or out of a long-term care facility . . . to name a few.

The Medicare Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) – which runs from October 15 to December 7 – is not a Special Enrollment Period.  As such, if your client is enrolling for coverage during AEP, the Information to Determine Enrollment Periods does not apply, and the page should be skipped.

Any enrollments occurring outside of the Annual Enrollment Period, must have one of the boxes checked to determine which SEP is applicable.
