Will my Medicare coverage follow me if I move out of the state?

Only some Medicare plans are able to be accessed across state lines.

Original Medicare Part A and Part B

Original Medicare Part A and Part B are not state specific; coverage will follow you from one state to the next.

Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D Prescription Drugs

Both of these plans are non-transferable from one state to the next. Enroll in a new plan during a special enrollment period.

Medigap

Because most Medigap plans do not have provider networks, they are also not state specific.

Medicare Select

The one Medigap exception is Medicare Select which does use a provider network. In this case, two options are available to you:

  • Switch to a regular Medigap policy from the same insurer.
  • Use the special enrollment period to sign up for a different Medigap plan (A, B, C, F, K, or L).

Helpful Hint

Find out what every Medicare plan really costs

Each Medicare plan covers different drugs, and re-imburses different amounts.

Until now, it was impossible to compare Medicare plans — to know how much you will really pay under each plan.

Medicare Helper is proud to introduce our Medicare True-Cost Revealer. Just tell us your drugs, and we’ll show you the "Everything Cost" for each plan — that is, the real cost of the plan through the year.

Amazing. And completely free.
