Medicare Part D, also known as Prescription Drug Plan, changes every year. As we discussed last month, Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) occurs once a year. This is the only time of the year you can change your Part D plan unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). For example, if you move out of the service area, if you are institutionalized, or experience any other “exceptional circumstance,” you may be qualified for a SEP.
Are approaching 65? Or maybe you're retiring soon? You've probably noticed your mailbox is getting full fast and soon you will receive an influx of calls from agents about Medicare secondary insurance. It's important to research your options, but it can be very confusing when you have so much coming at you all at once. Read this article to learn more.
Beginning October 1st through October 14th, MWG Senior Services prepares for the AEP by uploading the current medication worksheets you submitted and by comparing your current prescription drug plan (PDP) to your PDP for the upcoming year. These plans change every year and that is why we offer to review them annually, free of charge, for our Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage clients.
Did you know that Medigap plans are also known as Medicare Supplement? That's right! These two terms are completely interchangeable. If you didn't already know that, it can be a little confusing because some guides refer to them as Medigap and others refer to them as Medicare Supplements.
