Oklahoma enrollment begins at 65. The 6 month period begins 3 moths prior to your birthday and continues for 3 months following your birthday. At this time it is best to enroll in a Supplement as well. If you enroll in a Supplement during this open enrollment period, you cannot be declined because of your health.
While you can enroll in a Supplement at any time during the year, you will be required to fill out a health survey and can be denied coverage based on your pre-existing health conditions.

These plans are private insurance plans that offer the same benefits of Original Medicare and have additional benefits. These additional benefits include dental, vision and prescription drug coverage.
There is an enrollment period for those already receiving Part C benefits that runs from January 1st to March 31st. At this time existing beneficiaries can switch their Part C plan or opt into an Original Medicare plan.

Supplements and Original Medicare do not provide this coverage which can lead to a lot of out-of-pocket expenses at the pharmacy. This is why most beneficiaries choose to enroll in a Part D plan or an Advantage plan to ensure their prescriptions are covered.
