Annual Enrollment Period

Mid October through the first part of December is often referred to as “Open Enrollment Period” or “Annual Enrollment Period”. They go hand in hand, and here’s why. During this time, you can not only make changes to your stand-alone drug plan, but you can also make changes to your Medicare Advantage plan (depending on which one you have). We recommend having someone like us in your corner to assist you through these changes. Our only requirement for this annual assistance is that you sign up with a Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage plan through our advisors. If you do not currently have one of those plans through us, give us a call today and one of our advisors will be glad to help. They can be reached at (877) 759-5760, option 1. The Annual Enrollment Period comes every year at the same time, beginning October 15th and ending December 7th. Some clients are under the impression that the Annual Enrollment period is the only time you can change or get a Medicare Supplement. This is not true. The good thing about Medicare Supplements is that you can change them anytime throughout the year. This Annual Enrollment Period is only for making changes in a stand-alone prescription drug plan or a Medicare Advantage plan.

Compare Part D Plans

It is that time of the year - time to compare Part D plans. It is the Annual Election Period next week and this is the time of the year which you can compare and switch Part D plans. You do not have to compare or switch plans, but it is highly recommended since these plans will change each year.

Medicare Part D Analysis

Do you know how to complete a Medicare Part D analysis? An even better question is: does your Medicare Supplement agent help you compare Part D plans each year? If not you need to call Medicare Insurance Finders who will compare Medicare Part D plans each Annual Election Period (October 15th - December 7th) to make sure you have the most cost effective plan for your needs.

Prevent Medicare Part D Mistakes

With over 30 million drug plans written during the Annual Election Period there are going to be a few mistakes. Today, we will review some of the ways that you can prevent the Medicare Part D mistakes or issues that arise after submitting an application.
