Generally, anyone who is receiving Original Medicare Parts A and B is eligible for more coverage on an Advantage plan. There are a few requirements if you wish to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan. You must:
- Be eligible for Medicare
- Be enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B (if you are enrolled you would have received your red, white, and blue Medicare card)
- Live within the plan’s service area (which is based on the county you live in – not your state of residence)
- Not have end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
