Medicare—Which Plan is Right for you?

Medicare’s open enrollment season is upon us. That means between October 15 and December 7, those age 65 and over can make changes to their Medicare Advantage plan and prescription drug coverage.

During this time, you can change from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan or vice versa or switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another Medicare Advantage plan. You can also join a Medicare Advantage or Medicare prescription drug plan for the first time or drop your drug coverage completely.

Even if you’re satisfied with your current plan, open enrollment presents a great opportunity to make sure you’re getting the most out of Medicare. Every year you should compare your current plan to other plans in your area in case another plan offers better health and/or drug coverage at more affordable prices.

The coverage provided by insurance companies often changes each year and could result in paying more out-of-pocket on healthcare expenses throughout the year. Here are some tips to help you get started.

Medicare decisions can be complicated. If you have any questions about open enrollment, or if you’d like to discuss how healthcare costs factor into your overall financial plan, it’s a good idea to talk to your financial advisor. We also recommend contacting an experienced, independent agent who can search the market to find the best solutions for your situation.
