Medicare D Open Enrollment
The Medicare Open Enrollment period runs October 15 to December 7 each year. Plans are allowed to change their cost and coverage rules from year to year, so it is important to read the Annual Notice of Change received each year to see if there are any changes that affect you. Medicare beneficiaries may compare plans and make changes in their drug plan (Part D) or Medicare Advantage plan during this open enrollment period. Those changes will take effect on January 1.
Plan changes may affect your monthly premium, deductible, out of pocket maximum, drug co-pays and your pharmacy, doctor or hospital choices. It is important that you review your plan options each year during open enrollment.
Clients must complete an intake form and create a MyMedicare.gov account prior to making an appointment. After you turn in your Medicare Intake form you will be called to set up an appointment. No appointments will be made without an intake form being turned in.
