First Day of M...

First Day of Medicare Open Enrollment

  • Date: Sunday, October 15, 2017
  • All day event
  • Description: If you are over age 65 then you may qualify for a Medicare plan. Medicare open enrollment is from October 15th – December 7th every year, with any changes to your plan that you select becoming effective January 1st 2018. To compare plans, see what Medicare plans are available in your area, and to enroll in a new plan visit Medicare.gov or call 800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227). Another option for information and enrolling is to call the plan of your choice or visit its website. AARP encourages anyone who is on a Medicare plan or eligible for enrolling to review their options during the enrollment period. Many plans change and so do your health needs over the year so take this time to ensure that the plan you are using is the best fit for you.
    When picking a Medicare plan enrollees should remember the four C’s for enrolment: Cost, Coverage, Convenience, and Customer Service. Enrollees should consider the cost of premiums, what their deductible is, and cost sharing. Take the time to review the coverage that you are offered, what doctors and pharmacies are in your plan. Look into the convenience of the plan; are the doctors accessible, is mail ordering prescriptions available? Last, consider customer service of the plan. To find ratings based on the quality of care and customer service each plan provides go to Medicare.gov/quality-care-finder.

Ken knows that the best defense is to create a verdant retreat. As he says, “The garden of the future will be in the shade.” Ken Druse has been called “the guru of natural gardening” by the New York Times and is best known for his 20 garden books published over the last 25 years.

  • First Day of Medicare Open Enrollment

    Sunday Oct 15, 2017 All day

    If you are over age 65 then you may qualify for a Medicare plan. Medicare open enrollment is from October 15th – December 7th every year, with any changes to your plan that you select becoming effective January 1st 2018. To compare plans, see what Medicare plans are available in your area, and to enroll in a new plan visit Medicare.gov or call 800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227). Another option for information and enrolling is to call the plan of your choice or visit its website. AARP encourages anyone who is on a Medicare plan or eligible for enrolling to review their options during the enrollment period. Many plans change and so do your health needs over the year so take this time to ensure that the plan you are using is the best fit for you.
    When picking a Medicare plan enrollees should remember the four C’s for enrolment: Cost, Coverage, Convenience, and Customer Service. Enrollees should consider the cost of premiums, what their deductible is, and cost sharing. Take the time to review the coverage that you are offered, what doctors and pharmacies are in your plan. Look into the convenience of the plan; are the doctors accessible, is mail ordering prescriptions available? Last, consider customer service of the plan. To find ratings based on the quality of care and customer service each plan provides go to Medicare.gov/quality-care-finder.
