Before you start fully enjoying those upcoming December holidays, shopping, and time with family and friends, there’s one more thing you need to think about: Open Enrollment.
Every year, Medicare Open Enrollment begins October 15 and ends December 7. If you haven’t already chosen your 2021 plan, time is running out.
This is important for Medicare beneficiaries. It means that if you would like to change your Medicare coverage, now is the time to make those changes. If you would like to pick up extra coverage such as Medicare Part D, you can do that too.
If you are happy with your current coverage, you don’t need to do anything at all! Your current plan will carry over into next year as long as it’s still available. However, if you want to find a cheaper plan, add or drop coverage, or simply see what else is out there, do it now before it’s too late!
