Am I eligible for Samaritan Advantage?
To be eligible to choose a plan offered by Samaritan Advantage Health Plan HMO, you must meet these requirements:
You are 65 or older or have a disability and are eligible for Medicare.
You have Medicare Part A and Part B and you continue to pay the premium. For most of you this amount is already taken out of your Social Security before your Social Security check is deposited or sent to you.
Your permanent residence is located within our service area: Linn, Benton and Lincoln counties, Oregon.
You are not currently diagnosed as having ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease)—also known as kidney failure.
What time of year can I enroll?
Without a special election period due to special circumstances, Medicare beneficiaries may have to wait to enroll until Medicare's Annual Enrollment Period from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7
. Beneficiaries with special needs or other special circumstances may be eligible to enroll at any time of year.
New Medicare beneficiaries may apply for Samaritan Advantage coverage within 3 months of your 65th birthday
, no matter when that birthday occurs. Additionally, some beneficiaries, including those that are disabled as defined by Medicare, are allowed to enroll in or switch plans at other times. Contact us
