Important Deadline for Changing Medicare Coverage Near
Source: Las Vegas Review-Journal
For those over 65 looking to change their Medicare coverage, an important deadline is quickly approaching.
Medicare enrollees have until Dec. 7 to change an existing plan for the next year.
During open enrollment, Medicare patients can switch or enroll in a new prescription drug plan, or change their coverage from traditional Medicare to a privately run Medicare Advantage plan and vice versa. A Medicare Advantage plan offers extra benefits for a monthly premium.
Medicare.gov’s online tool, at https://www.medicare.gov/find-a-plan/questions/home.aspx, can help enrollees find the plan that’s right for them.
