Medicare Open Enrollment, held annually between October 15th and December 7th, is your chance to make sure your Medicare coverage meets your current needs. Each year, only a small percentage of Medicare Beneficiaries compare Medicare Advantage Plans or Prescription Drug Plans, though most would benefit from doing so. In Southwest Utah last year, the average savings for seniors who changed their Medicare plan was $500 a year. Comparing plans is simple and takes only about 20 minutes. The Area Agency on Aging -SHIP is here to help!
