Your Texas clients need to understand your options when it comes to health insurance. With the changing landscape of healthcare, it’s essential for consumers to know if they are eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). It’s also important for your customers to understand their Aetna Medicare options in Texas.
A special enrollment period is a window of time outside of the annual Open Enrollment Period when a customer can enroll in a health plan. A qualifying event, such as the birth of a child, a move, or a change in employment typically triggers the SEP period.
The following are specific SEPs in Texas:
- Disaster SEP: If a customer is affected by a major disaster declared by the President, they may be eligible for a Disaster SEP.
- Medicaid/CHIP SEP: Medicaid and CHIP provide free or low-cost health coverage to eligible children in Texas. If a consumer is eligible, they may enroll in a Medicaid/CHIP SEP all year round.
- SEP for Indian tribes: If your client is a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe, they may be eligible for a SEP all year round.
- SEP for Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) Corporations: If someone is an Alaska Native, they may be eligible for a SEP all year round.
- General SEP: This SEP is available to individuals who didn’t enroll during the Open Enrollment Period and are not eligible for any of the other SEPs listed above.
If your customers are considering enrolling in an Aetna Medicare plan in Texas, they may be eligible for a SEP. Aetna offers a range of Medicare plans with different levels of coverage, so you can help them find the plan that best fits your needs.
