- California Birthday Rule (View the info here).
In California, if you are a current Medicare Supplement member (with any company) you are able to switch companies on the month of your birthday every year to a company of your choice – Guaranteed, and no health questions asked. So regardless of your current health status you can switch to a company with the same Medicare Supplement plan or one with less benefits. This is a great benefit to take advantage of so you aren’t stuck with the same company who’s premium becomes noncompetitive. This Birthday rule is unique to California residents only. Please call if you have any questions.
