If you are enrolled in MoreCare for You or Morecare+: usually, to end your membership in MoreCare, you simply enroll in another Medicare plan during one of the enrollment periods.
If you are enrolled in MoreCare Home or MoreCare at Home: usually, to end your membership in MoreCare, you simply enroll in another Medicare plan.
However, if you want to switch from a MoreCare plan to Original Medicare without a Medicare prescription drug plan, you must ask to be disenrolled from our plan. There are two ways you can ask to be disenrolled:
You can make a request in writing to us. Contact Member Services if you need more information on how to do this.

Your membership will usually end on the first day of the month after your request to change your plan is received.
