Question: What if I am currently living in another state and planning on moving to Arizona . Do I still have to reapply for Medicare ?

Answer: Before you move, contact the Medicare office in Arizona.  Depending on where you live and your current plan, it’s possible that your benefits will roll over.

If you notify your current plan before you move, you can change it up to one month before you move and up to two months afterwards.
