Medicare Open Enrollment: Don't Set It and Forget It. Set a Meeting and Save!
Each year, Medicare beneficiaries have the opportunity to change their Medicare Prescription Drug plans and Medicare Advantage Plans during the annual Open Enrollment Period, held between October 15th and December 7th. During this time, Medicare beneficiaries may notice an increase in Medicare related advertisements and it may be difficult to know where to turn for unbiased, objective assistance.
The Area Agency on Aging – Five County is here to help. Staff and volunteers with the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) can help local Medicare beneficiaries navigate the options available in our area. Medicare counselors with the SHIP program can provide benefits explanations and plan comparisons for all of the Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage Plans available in Southwest Utah.
There are many new plans available in Southern Utah this year and every Medicare beneficiary with a Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Prescription Drug Plan could benefit from a plan review. This plan review takes only a few minutes to complete and could result in hundreds of dollars in savings.
Prescription drug plans and Medicare Advantage Plans can change their premium amounts, copays, deductibles, formularies and In-Network from year to year so even the plan that was best last year may not still be the best option. And because everyone’s situation is unique, the “best” plan for one person may not be the same for their friend, neighbor or even spouse.
