Why Review Your Medicare Open Enrollment Options?

Reasons to review your current Medicare health plan during open enrollment

by Amy De Vore+ on Oct 18, 2016 | 1 Comment

You should review your Medicare open enrollment options, even if you like your current plan.

Before we explain why this is important, here’s a quick reminder about Medicare’s Annual Election Period (AEP). Open Enrollment Medicare runs from October 15 thru December 7th each year. During this time you can join or switch a Medicare Advantage plan or prescription drug plan, or reenroll in Original Medicare.

Why Review Medicare Options During Open Enrollment?

Medicare Health plans change each year, so even if you like your current coverage you’ll want to review your Medicare open enrollment options. Some of the changes this year will be:

  • Increases in Medicare Advantage and Part D premiums
  • Increases in out-of-pocket costs
  • Additional expensive drug-pricing tiers
  • Additional charges if you don’t go to approved pharmacies
  • New restrictions on drug coverage
  • Doctor and hospital network changes

Do I have to answer medical questions to switch to a new Medicare Advantage plan?

No, you don't need to answer any medical questions when applying for a new Medicare Advantage plan. Please let us know if you need help finding a new MA plan.
