Medicare Part A and Part B Enrollment Equitable Relief for the COVID-19 Pandemic-Related National Emergency

CMS is granting equitable relief in the form of additional time to use an Initial Enrollment Period (IEP), General Enrollment Period (GEP), or a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) (such as the SEP for when a beneficiary’s enrollment in employer coverage based on current employment ends) in order to file an application for Part B, premium-Part A, or to refuse automatic Part B.

This equitable relief will last from March 17, 2020 through June 17, 2020.

Beneficiaries are eligible for this equitable relief if: - The beneficiary had an enrollment period during the period from March 17, 2020, through June 17, 2020, that was an IEP, GEP, SEP; and - The beneficiary did not apply for Part B (or premium-Part A) or refuse Part B during that IEP, GEP, or SEP. - Eligible beneficiaries who wish to take advantage of the equitable relief must file their enrollment request by June 17, 2020.
