How to submit 2019 MA/MAPD and PDP enrollments

Starting October 15, you’ll have several options to submit 2019 MA/MAPD or PDP enrollment applications. There are a few important changes this year. Please note that mailing addresses and fax numbers vary by plan and some have changed for 2019. Make sure you send paper applications to the specific address or fax number listed on the enrollment form.

Don’t forget, when assisting clients, you’re responsible for answering all their questions, and submitting a complete enrollment application within two calendar days after they sign the application.

REMINDER: You may NOT accept, collect or take possession of a completed AEP enrollment application prior to October 15, unless the beneficiary is entitled to another enrollment period.
