What is the last day for Medicare enrollment? The current enrollment period for seniors searching for Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement (Medigap) enrollment is on Wednesday, December 7, 2011. Seniors that wish to enroll in a medicare plan must sign up during this open enrollment period, which had started on October 15th.

  Seniors that wait until after December 7th will not be able to change their policy or add Medigap or Advantage coverage until October 15th, 2012.

Seniors that fail to sign up for a Medicare plan before December 7th  will not be able to join a plan for 2012. Don’t let this happen to you or seniors that you care about!
