Review Your Medicare Coverage During Open Enrollment (October 15 - December 7)

-A A +A

Do you know why it is important to review your Medicare Advantage or Medicare Prescription Drug Plan during Medicare Open Enrollment?

Here are just a few reasons:

  • Plans may make changes to their Formulary (the drugs that they cover)
  • Plans may make changes to their Premium (monthly cost)
  • Plans may make changes to their co-pays at the pharmacy or at the doctor/hospital as well as other covered services
  • Plans may make changes to their network of doctors and hospitals
  • Plans may cancel their contract with Medicare – canceling your plan completely
  • New plans may become available that are more cost effective than your current plan
  • Plans may end their contract with specific pharmacies or pharmacy chains

Last year during Medicare Open Enrollment, Action for Older Persons met one-on-one with more than 780 individuals and saved Broome County residents an estimated $899,069 in premium and copays expenses for 2016. Most of this savings was in prescription costs.

To understand your options and enroll in the most cost-effective plan, call Action for Older Persons at 607-722-1251 to schedule an appointment.
