Medicare Advantage Information
Find a Doctor
You can't choose when you may be sick. But you can choose who will make you better.
If you are eligible for Medicare (eligibility requirements) we encourage you to review your options and consider a Medicare Advantage plan that gives you access to PIH Health.
If your eligibility is activated due to turning 65, the Initial Enrollment Period begins three months before you turn 65, includes your birth month, and continues for three months after you turn 65. If you don't sign up during the Initial Enrollment Period or you would like to change your existing plan, you can do so during Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP), which occurs October 15 through December 7.
Are you about to turn 65?
Learn about your Medicare options by attending one of our Age-In presentations. See our Medicare Age-In flyers for specific dates and times for this year.

Medicare Open Enrollment Period
January 1 to March 31 is Medicare Open Enrollment Period (OEP), not to be confused with the Annual Election Period (AEP). OEP is for those Medicare beneficiaries who are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C). It is not for those with Medicare Supplemental plans or Original Medicare. During OEP, there are two options:
- Switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another.
- Disenroll from a Medicare Advantage plan and return to Original Medicare, with or without a prescription drug plan.
If you are happy with your current choice, no action is needed. You may speak with one of our broker agents to discuss your plan options. Please reference the broker flyers listed below.
There are three ways to ensure that you enroll with a Medicare plan that include PIH Health hospitals and doctors:
- Call PIH Health Customer Care Center at 562.906.5719
- Contact the Medicare Advantage health plans directly
- Get in touch with an insurance broker
Brokers can assist you with various health insurance information and enrollment. Below is a link to our Broker flyer.
