In addition to changing plans, you can also enroll in Medicare Part D Prescription Drug coverage during the Medicare Supplement Open Enrollment Period.
If you have already enrolled in a Medicare Supplement plan, you can still change plans during this time, but you can only switch to another plan from the same company. You can't switch from one Medicare Supplement insurance company to another.
