Enrollment plan window closes -- somewhat

Say goodbye to a second open enrollment window, which used to run from Jan. 1 to March 31.

Instead, the Medicare Advantage Disenrollment period is your second chance to change plans. It runs from Jan. 1 through Feb. 14. Use this window to sign up for original Medicare. But be warned -- you can't switch to another Advantage plan.

"There was an annual one-shot at refining options," says Gada. "Now you're limited to what you can switch to."

If you're thinking about changing plans, go to Medicare.gov's Plan Finder tool to compare coverage options.
