Online Enrollment Form

Be advised that:

  • Medicare limits the times when most beneficiaries can add, change, or drop coverage (known as election or enrollment periods). Generally, beneficiaries who receive both Medicaid and Medicare can add, change, or drop coverage only once during each of the following:
    • January 1 – March 31
    • April 1 – June 30
    • July 1 – September 30
    • October 15 – December 7: You may request to add, change, or drop coverage. The change won't go into effect until January 1 of the following year.
  • By filling out this information, you will be sending an actual enrollment request to AmeriHealth Caritas VIP Care.
  • Once you have submitted the online enrollment form, you will be enrolled in the plan (if your enrollment is approved by Medicare).
Who can use this form? People with Medicare who want to join a Medicare Advantage Plan.
To join a plan, you must:
  • Be a United States citizen or be lawfully present in the United States.
  • Live in the plan's service area.

Important: To join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you must also have both:

What do I need to complete this form?
  • Your Medicare number (the number on your red, white, and blue Medicare card).
  • Your permanent address and phone number.

Note: You must complete all items in section 1. The items in section 2 are optional — you can't be denied coverage because you don't fill them out.

Reminders:
  • If you want to join a plan during fall open enrollment (October 15 – December 7), the plan must get your completed form by December 7.
  • Your plan will send you a bill for the plan's premium. You can choose to sign up to have your premium payments deducted from your bank account or your monthly Social Security (or Railroad Retirement Board) benefit.
