Medicare open enrollment beginning soon

Posted On Thu, October 13, 2011

A recent announcement from the National Council on Aging reminded consumers that the Annual Open Enrollment for Medicare programs begins on October 15 and will continue until December 7.

This period allows those who have Medicare to adjust their plans and get something that is more well-tailored to their long-term medical needs. In addition, it can allow consumers to obtain a Part D prescription plan, which may be beneficial.

"Beneficiaries should review their current plan and their health needs and explore options during Open Enrollment," said Nora Dowd Eisenhower, vice president, Benefits Access Group, and director of NCOA's National Center for Benefits Outreach and Enrollment. "Since plans change, it's important to make sure you're in the one that best meets your coverage needs. This could save you hundreds of dollars."

Health insurance rates may vary, but there are many options that could be more affordable than Medicare options, and also provide a more wide-range of coverage, which may be better for those that need special care.
