Medicare D Open Enrollment

Open enrollment dates for 2019

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.

MyMedicare.gov Personal Account
You will need to create a MyMedicare.gov personal account before we are able to do your plan comparisons. For information on how to create your account, click create your MyMedicare.gov personal account.

NOTE:  If you have already created an account you do not need to create a new one.

K-State Research & Extension partners with the Department of Aging and Disability Services to bring free, confidential, unbiased assistance to Medicare beneficiaries and their families. 

**Changes Due to COVID-19**
It is the goal of K-State Research & Extension to provide services to our communities in the safest manner possible during this time.  Staff and volunteers will continue to assist with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Comparisons, however we will try to provide as much assistance as possible via telephone and email.  We will also have Zoom appointments available as well as in-person appointments when necessary.
