What if the enrollment deadline has passed?

If you are already a member of the APWU Health Plan’s High Option, you can elect the enhanced level of benefits (UnitedHealthcare Group Medicare Advantage (PPO) plan), at any time.

If you are not yet a member of the APWU Health Plan’s High Option, you must enroll in the plan (plan codes 471, 472, or 473) during Open Season before electing the enhanced level of benefits.

If the enrollment deadline has passed, you may not be able to enroll in a plan until the next enrollment period, unless you qualify for a Special Election Period.   

If you are a resident of Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands, please download, complete, and return the application (PDF)(610.7 KB) to: UnitedHealthcare P.O. Box 30770 Salt Lake City, UT 84130-0770 Or fax it to 888-950-1170 Incomplete information may delay your enrollment

It's important to enroll in Medicare Part A and Part B when you first become eligible, during the Initial Enrollment Period.    Medicare Part B requires a monthly premium payment for coverage, which is determined by when you enroll. In most cases, premium rates increase by 10 percent for each full 12-month period that you could have had Part B, but were not enrolled.
