Medicare Matters: Open Enrollment Starts 10/15

By Allen Insurance and Financial | Sep 25, 2016

When it comes to Medicare, one size doesn’t fit all. While everyone has the same benefits available to them through Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plan benefits vary by county and are subject to change from one year to the next.

If your health needs have changed in the last year, it’s important that we review your coverage. At Allen Insurance and Financial, our goal is to help you find the best plan that fits your needs and supports the way you live.

Oct. 15 to Dec. 7 is the open enrollment period for Medicare coverage in 2017. Plan changes take effect Jan. 1.

Plan information for 2017 will become available Oct. 1. By that time you should have received your Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) from your insurer to explain how your plan will be changing for 2017. If you have questions about your coverage or need to make a change, open enrollment is a great opportunity to do this.
