Can my Mom change her Medicare plan during open enrollment if she's in a NH or does she have to wait until she is out?
My mom is on a Medicare Advantage plan. We really disliked having HMO and little choices when she was in ICU the past month. Now that she's in a nursing home rehabilitating, it may be several weeks before she can go home.
With open enrollment coming up, can we switch her plan to regular Medicare or maybe a PPO version of Blue Shield instead ? Or do they not allow changes while she's still recovering from her surgery 40 days ago.
