There are several reasons why it is important to keep your Medicare plan up to date:
  • To ensure that you are receiving the best possible care. Medicare plans can change from year to year, so it is important to make sure that your plan still meets your needs.
  • To avoid any surprises. If your plan changes, you may need to pay more for your care or you may not be able to see certain doctors or hospitals.
  • To avoid any penalties. If you do not keep your plan up to date, you may have to pay a penalty when you enroll in a new plan.
  • To make sure that you are getting the most out of your Medicare benefits. Medicare offers a variety of benefits, but you need to make sure that you are aware of them and that you are taking advantage of them.

There are a few things you can do to keep your Medicare plan up to date:

  • Review your plan every year. Medicare plans can change from year to year, so it’s important to review your plan every year to make sure it’s still meeting your needs.
  • Contact your plan administrator if your plan changes. If your plan changes, you’ll need to contact your plan administrator to update your information.
  • Make sure you’re enrolled in the right plan. If you’re not sure which plan is right for you, you can contact your local Social Security office or Medicare Advantage plan for help.

If you have any questions about your Medicare plan, you can contact Ashford Insurance at 817-952-3153.
