Ready, Set, Go! Annual Enrollment is Here! by Laura B. Sedlacek
LENOIR, NC (October 1, 2019) — Hey! It’s that time again – Annual Enrollment! The Annual Enrollment Period for Medicare Advantage (MA) and Prescription Drug Plans (PDP) also known as Part D is on its way. Annual Enrollment for these plans is October 15th-December 7th.
This is the time period when you can renew your coverage as is, change plans within the same company, make a change in your MA or PDP plans, or take one out if you are not currently in the initial coverage enrollment time period and haven’t had one before. You can also drop your MA plan and return to Original Medicare, a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) and/or a stand-alone Part D plan, etc. Please note: you may have to qualify medically to go on a Medigap plan depending on your circumstances.
There are many things to consider during Annual Enrollment. Be sure to consult an insurance professional who can compare the differences in your choices for you. You ultimately will want to get a coverage that works best overall for your situation with doctors and hospitals who accept your plan. Any plan changes must be received by December 7th so don’t delay exploring your choices today.
