MEDICARE OPEN ENROLLMENT - Oct. 15th - Dec. 7, 2016

September 6th, 2016 by Marie DeWolf


The Annual Election Period (AEP) is an annual open enrollment period that allows Medicare participants to review their current plan and discuss changes to the plans for 2017. During AEP, you may:

  • Switch from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan
  • Switch from a Medicare Advantage plan back to Original Medicare
  • Switch from a Medicare Advantage plan to a different Medicare Advantage plan
  • Switch from a Medicare Advantage plan that doesn’t include drug coverage to one that does and vice versa
  • Join a Medicare prescription drug plan Switch from one Medicare prescription drug plan to another one
  • Drop your Medicare prescription drug plan

This is an excellent opportunity to update the Part D (drug) plan. You can change your Drug plan every year at this Open Enrollment. If you have new prescriptions or your current plan is changing, a different plan may work better, to cover your current and new drugs.

Let us know if you have any questions and would like to visit and review your plan to make sure it is the RIGHT plan for your present needs.
