    Have a client who's Medicare started July 1. He had been on Medicare disability for 1 year, and had a Humana drug plan since Jan 1 this year. Turns out the plan he has doesn't cover a new drug he now takes. Can he switch plans now, or is he locked in?

    Original poster doesn't mention age. His post is poorly written. How does the client have a Medicare drug plan since Jan, but is now starting Medicare 7/1? He's not explaining something correctly.

    I'm assuming prior to 7.01.16, this person was a Medi-Medi enrolled in Humana LIS? New to Medicare 7.01.16?

    Or just new to part B if previously was covered under some other plan. But the OP is missing a lot of pertinent information.

    Reading between the lines I believe he had part A and enrolled in PDP in 2016 AEP.Enrolled in part b in GEP effective 7/1/16 .He had an ICEP for an MA that was only available for a 7/1/16 effective date.
