Medicare Annual Open Enrollment

Medicare Open Enrollment ​

October 15 – December 7

If you have Medicare coverage, now is the time to:

  1. Review your Medicare plan for its coverage, cost, convenience, and customer service.
  2. Compare your current plans with new Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans and Medicare Advantage Plans for added benefits to you.
  3. Decide if a change will improve your coverage. If not, keep your current coverage and do nothing.
