For Medicare eligible individuals, it is currently the Medicare Open Enrollment Period. Now is the time to review your coverage and decide if you need to make any changes to your plan.
Medicare has four categories: Medicare Part A, Part B, Part C (Medicare Advantage Plan), and Part D. Each part provides different coverage. It may be to your advantage to consult a Benefits Specialist if you need assistance in determining which plan is right for you. Visit www.medicare.gov to review and compare your coverage options.
