*What is the California Birthday Rule?
California law provides an annual open enrollment for those Medicare beneficiaries who have a Medicare Supplement plan. This is known as the Birthday Rule. The law allows any beneficiary to enroll in any available carrier's "like or lesser" Supplement plan without underwriting on their birthday plus 30 days thereafter in replacement of their current supplement. Like or lesser meaning supplemental benefits equal to (same letter ) or less than the current supplement plan. Plan F members can move to any other supplement as every plan would be considered like or lesser. For more details, contact me.
CA Insurance Code 10192.11 (h) (1) An individual shall be entitled to an annual open enrollment period lasting 30 days or more, commencing with the individual's birthday, during which time that person may purchase any Medicare supplement policy that offers benefits equal to or lesser than those provided by the previous coverage. During this open enrollment period, no issuer that falls under this provision shall deny or condition the issuance or effectiveness of Medicare supplement coverage, nor discriminate in the pricing of coverage, because of health status, claims experience, receipt of health care, or medical condition of the individual if, at the time of the open enrollment period, the individual is covered under another Medicare supplement policy or contract. An issuer shall notify a policyholder of his or her rights under this subdivision at least 30 and no more than 60 days before the beginning of the open enrollment period.
