The 21st Century Cures Act eliminated the Medicare Advantage disenrollment period that used to take place each year, from January 1st to February 14th. Again this year, Medicare is offering the Advantage Open Enrollment Period which will run from January 1st to March 31st. So this pretty much applies to folks that are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan.
