UVM Health Advantage is a new kind of Medicare Advantage plan. One that’s been guided by doctors from the UVM Health Network and Medicare experts at MVP Health Care®.
UVM Health Advantage is available across all of Vermont and in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, and St. Lawrence counties in New York.
Eligible Medicare consumers can enroll during the Initial Enrollment Period when first becoming eligible for Medicare or during the Annual Open Enrollment Period. The Initial Enrollment Period is a seven-month window starting three months before you turn 65 to three months after your birthday month. The Annual Open Enrollment Period occurs between October 15 and December 7 each year. You can also make changes to coverage when certain events happen in your life, like if you move or you lose other insurance coverage (known as Special Enrollment Periods).
After hearing from more than 1,000 Medicare-eligible community members from across Vermont and northern New York, the providers of the UVM Health Network and the Medicare experts at MVP Health Care identified a need for a Medicare Advantage plan in this region that would make health care and simpler and easier to use. This led to the creation of UVM Health Advantage.
