Medicare Open Enrollment In Full Swing

By Aaron of Allsup

We’re getting ready for the presidential election and the World Series, so that means it’s also time to prepare for Medicare open enrollment season.

Actually, open enrollment is well underway. It began Oct. 15 and runs through Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Open enrollment is the window that Medicare participants have to review their 2017 plan options. This is your opportunity to make changes to your Medicare Advantage or Part D prescription drug plans.

You can also find ways to save money.

Because Medicare’s Boards of Trustees said they expect higher Part B premiums next year, I strongly advise you to take a good look at all of your options—that’s your money they’re talking about. (Looking for details about Medicare’s “Parts”? Click here.)

Choosing your Medicare plan can be difficult because there are so many options to consider. The Kaiser Family Foundation reports that you’ll have a choice of about 19 Medicare Advantage plans, 26 prescription drug plans and 16 Medicare Advantage-Part D plans.

That’s why I suggest that you check out the Allsup Medicare Advisor. It provides Medicare plan selection assistance with Medicare Advantage plans, Part D prescription drug plans and Medigap, or supplemental coverage.
