Medicare Open Enrollment Starts October 15, 2018
Medicare Open Enrollment is an opportunity to review your coverages and make any necessary changes. The Open Enrollment period runs from October 15 to December 7, 2018.
As a Medicare participant you have several elections and Medicare provides you with some guidance to help you make the right choice for you. Original Medicare does not cover 100% of your medical expenses and there are some coverage limitations but there are options available that do expand your coverage. Follow this link to review and get help with your Medicare decisions.
Medicare provides additional information to help you elect which is the best plan or combination of plans for you. Medicare Health Plans are generally provided by private companies who have contracts with Medicare to meet the requirements set by Medicare. The number of options continues to grow, and costs vary based on a number of factors such as Medications, Extent of Coverage provided, Service Provider Network (HMO, PPO, etc.) and other factors.
