“Choosing an insurance plan can be overwhelming or even a little frightening, and you can certainly benefit from the right resources at the right times, such as during open enrollment,” said Aaron Tidball, manager, Allsup Medicare Operations.
Open enrollment offers individuals the opportunity to enroll for the first time or review their health insurance coverage and make changes based on their health and financial needs.
An Enroll America survey showed almost 90 percent of Marketplace enrollees wanted more information about how to use their coverage. About half of the uninsured respondents expressed a lack of confidence in choosing their coverage.
“When it comes to Medicare, one study showed that nearly one-fourth of beneficiaries were surprised when their plan didn’t cover the medical care they needed,” said Tidball. “Another study showed that 95 percent of Medicare beneficiaries spent too much on their prescriptions.” See the Medicare infographic here.
