Medicare’s Annual (also known as Open) Enrollment Period is HERE. From October 15th through December 7th, Medicare beneficiaries are in the most advantageous window for health insurance options without switching penalties.
This time frame requires you to take a good, hard look at your current coverage and decide whether or not your benefits, network, and costs are still working for your lifestyle.
A couple things to consider…
- Are your health needs changing?
- Do you need extra help paying for your prescription drugs?
From year to year, many Medicare plans change. You should have already received information from your current provider explaining any changes to your benefits and coverage (see below for a list of the 4 most important Medicare pieces to look out for in the mail).
After reviewing your updated plan notice, decide whether or not you need to look into new options. Remember, this open enrollment window allows beneficiaries to change plans without penalties, so it’s okay to change plans!
