Here are some tips to take the stress out of Medicare annual enrollment:
  • Plan ahead. Start thinking about your Medicare options well in advance of the annual enrollment period. This will give you time to compare plans and make sure you’re getting the best coverage for your needs.
  • Do your research. There are a lot of different Medicare plans available, so it’s important to do your research and compare them before you enroll. You can use the Medicare Plan Finder to compare plans in your area.
  • Talk to your doctor. Your doctor can help you understand your Medicare options and choose the plan that’s right for you. They can also help you make sure your medications are covered by your plan.
  • Get organized. Keep track of your Medicare information, such as your Social Security number and your health insurance company’s contact information. This will make it easier to enroll in a new plan or make changes to your current plan.
  • Don’t wait until the last minute. The annual enrollment period is only 7 weeks long, so it’s important to enroll early. This will help you avoid any late enrollment penalties.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you have any questions about Medicare, you can contact your local Social Security office or Medicare Advantage plan. There are also a lot of resources available online, such as the Medicare website and the Medicare Rights Center website.
  • Read your ANOC. Your Annual Notice Of Change will tell you of any changes to be aware of concerning your current Medicare Advantage or Part D plan.
