Legal Aid: Make Informed Decision on Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment
Mon, 01/07/2019 - 06:42 RCN Newsdesk
Each year, between January 1 and March 31, we enter into the Medicare Advantage open enrollment period.
During this time of the year, current Medicare Advantage plan members can leave their plan and return to
Original Medicare as well as enroll in a Part D prescription drug plan to supplement their Original Medicare.
Beginning in 2019, members also have the option to switch to a different Medicare Advantage plan during the open enrollment period.
Because you are only allowed one switch during this period, it is important to make an informed decision.
Trained SHIP counselors can complete unbiased, free comparisons to provide information about plan options. If you have questions, contact SHIP. Your local SHIP Program is funded to help you connect with money-saving benefits that those on Medicare are entitled to receive.
