A REMINDER ABOUT MEDICARE OPEN ENROLLMENT

Nov 27th, 2011 | By Sharon Shaw Elrod MSW EdD | Category: Social Security & Medicare

Open Enrollment Beginning and Ending Earlier This Year

Just a reminder to our readers… Open Enrollment begins and ends earlier this year (2011).  And the ending date is coming up within 10 days.  If you want to make changes in your plan, you need to do so by December 7. The Medicare.gov site says this:

“There’ll be a wide range of health and drug plan options available across the country, including Original Medicare. Most people with Medicare can choose a “Part D” plan to help them pay for prescription drugs. And people who have chosen to enroll in a “Part C” Medicare Advantage plan for their basic health care services have the option of staying in that plan, choosing a different plan, or going back to the Original Medicare program.
Plans can change from year to year, so these are important choices that should be made with care. People can turn to www.medicare.gov, call 1-800-MEDICARE, or consult with a local State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) for help.”  cms/medicare.gov

Be sure you give attention to this deadline if you want to make changes.
