Every year Medicare Part D Open Enrollment is from October 15th to December 7th.  This is a crucial time for individuals participating in Medicare Part D to review their coverage for the following year and identify if another plan may be a better fit based on their current prescriptions and plan changes. 

Stop by or call the Medicine Shoppe for assistance in finding a cost effective plan for 2016 based on your current prescriptions.  We will provide a report with three cost effective Part D plans for you. 

Below is some basic information from Medicare.gov on the Medicare Open Enrollment period. 

 

What’s the Medicare Open Enrollment Period?

Medicare health and drug plans can make changes each year—things like cost, coverage, and what providers and pharmacies are in their networks. October 15 to December 7 is when all people with Medicare can change their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage for the following year to better meet their needs.

How do people know if they need to change plans?

People in a Medicare health or prescription drug plan should always review the materials their plans send them, like the “Evidence of Coverage” (EOC) and “Annual Notice of Change” (ANOC). If their plans are changing, they should make sure their plans will still meet their needs for the following year. If they’re satisfied that their current plans will meet their needs for next year and it’s still being offered, they don’t need to do anything.
