If you want to switch from a Medicare Advantage Plan to the Original Medicare Plan,
you need to contact your current plan or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
If you want to buy a Medigap Policy
, simply signing up for the Medigap policy won't end your Medicare Advantage Plan coverage. You must disenroll. In some cases, you may have certain Medigap protections that give you the right to buy a Medigap policy, but in other cases, you may not be able to buy any Medigap policy. Your rights to buy a Medigap policy can vary by state. If you want to talk to someone who can help you decide what to do, call your State Health Insurance Assistance Program
(see Other Important Medicare Contacts
for their telephone number).
