After You Enroll

Medicare must approve your enrollment before you are officially a member. This takes about 10 business days.

Enrollment Confirmation and ID Card

Within 10 days of getting your enrollment form, we’ll send you an acknowledgement letter. After your enrollment is approved by Medicare, you’ll get a confirmation letter that includes your ID card. Share your new ID card with your primary care provider (PCP) and your pharmacist so they have your correct information.

Welcome Kit

You should receive your welcome kit in the mail a couple of weeks after your ID card. It includes the formulary, Evidence of Coverage and other helpful information.

Personal Phone Call

We will call to welcome you to the plan. We’ll ask you if you have questions about your benefits or if you have special needs we should know about. We may ask you a few basic health questions, help you set up your Annual Wellness Exam, and talk more about the Rewards & Incentives program.

Find a Provider

If you haven’t already, search for in-network providers to choose a PCP who is in your network. Setup your Annual Wellness Visit with your provider once your coverage is active.
