With open enrollment season upon us, ask yourself a few questions to make sure you’re getting the most from Medicare.
Medicare’s open enrollment season is upon us. That means between October 15 and December 7, you are able to make changes to your Medicare Advantage and prescription drug coverage.
During this time, you can change from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan or vice-versa or switch from one Medicare Advantage Plan to another Medicare Advantage Plan. You can also join a Medicare advantage or Medicare prescription drug plan for the first time or drop your drug coverage completely.
Even if you’re satisfied with your current plan, open enrollment presents a great opportunity to make sure you’re getting the most out of Medicare. Every year you should compare your current plan to other plans in your area in case another plan offers better health and/or drug coverage at more affordable prices.
