Open Enrollment Dates for 2014
This year, open enrollment takes place from Oct. 15th to December 7th for all Medicare plans. This is the time to research to make sure that whatever you have in place is the best plan for you. If you have the Part D drug coverage, check that all of your drugs are on the formulary for the plan you have chosen. If you have not changes to make, you do not have to do anything.
Choose an insurance broker who does insurance for a number of plans. Then they will be able to find the best plan to suit your needs. Anyone can visit their Area Agency on Aging who are navigators for healthcare plans. They will help you to think through what you need and explain the plans.
