You are eligible to enroll in Quartz Medicare Select if:
- You are disabled or age 65 or older
- You are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B
- You are a Wisconsin resident on the initial effective date of the policy
You cannot be covered by Medicaid (BadgerCare) or a Medicare Advantage plan and also have Medicare Select.
Open Enrollment Periods
Each Medicare beneficiary has an Open Enrollment Period. During this time, enrollment in a supplement plan from Medicare is guaranteed. A supplement plan cannot turn down the applicant’s enrollment request (as long as all eligibility criteria are met).
This period lasts for the six calendar months immediately following enrollment in Medicare Parts A and B.
Guarantee Issue Periods
Guarantee Issue occurs if you are applying within six months of enrolling in Medicare Part B or within six months of turning 65. Other Guarantee Issue Periods may apply.
Other Enrollment Periods
If an individual is enrolling outside of either an Open Enrollment or Guarantee Issue period, the application will be reviewed to determine whether the plan will accept the applicant based on health factors.
