When can I buy Medigap?
The best time to buy a Medigap policy is during your 6-month Medigap open enrollment period, because you can buy any Medigap policy sold in your state, even if you have health problems. This period automatically starts the month you're 65 and enrolled in Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance). After this enrollment period, you may not be able to buy a Medigap policy. If you're able to buy one, it may cost more.

The Physician, the Community and Health Care Reform
Report by Dr. Joseph Boffa
Since 2000 the Rhode Island Alliance for Retired Americans fostered HealthLink Wellness a program committed to reducing the risk of chronic disease among retirees by promoting health screening, health education and exercise. Its strategy has been to develop partnerships that engage the retiree through their social networking. Starting in 2010 we added a network of primary care physicians who provided medical back up for community based outreach efforts.
