It’s that time of year again! The Medicare Open Enrollment Period is upon us beginning on October 15th and ending on December 7th. This is the time of year when anyone enrolled into Medicare can review and make any necessary plan changes to their Medicare Advantage plan and Prescription Drug plans which will take affect the beginning of the following year.
In the weeks leading up to the Open Enrollment Period all Insurance plans will be sending out their upcoming years “Evidence of Coverage” (EOC) and “Annual Notice of Change” (ANOC). If there are any changes in the plan they will be reflected in these documents. Medicare members are encouraged to review these materials to ensure their plan will still meet their needs for the following year.
Another great resource is the “Medicare & You” handbook which is sent out to all Medicare eligible members. This resource provides detailed information on your Medicare options, how to enroll into Medicare, what Medicare will cover for tests and services. In this resource it will also provide a quick preview of the available Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug plans in and around your service area.
It is also that time of the year where you will receive many brochures in the mail from many companies highlighting their plans.
Reviewing your current health and prescription drug plan is highly encouraged. Every year there are changes within the healthcare industry. We’re here to help review and explain how your current plan may be changing, provide a review of your prescriptions and assist in conducting a prescription analysis, assist in making any necessary plan changes, and most importantly serve you on an ongoing annual basis.
