According to a recent study, 80% of all Medicare patients are not on the most beneficial Part D Medicare plan, and only three out of every five Medicare patients take the time to review their plans annually. If you are one of those people who is not fully up to speed with your Medicare Part D Plan, and want more info, now is the time to begin looking into comparing your options.
Every year from October 15th to December 7tth, there is an annual Open Enrollment period, in which people can switch out of current Medicare plans into new ones- including Part D Prescription Drug Plans.
One major reason it is important to compare Medicare plans annually is the constantly changing formularies. Medicare plans update their formularies, drug costs and reimbursements every two weeks. Usually these changes are unnoticeable and subtle, but over a full year, small changes in pricing or coverage could cause immense differences in costs for a patient.
Certain people are eligible to change plans outside of Open Enrollment Period.
If you meet one of the above criteria, and would like to change your Medicare Part D Plan before Open Enrollment Period begins, call the Medicare gurus at PlanMedicare to discuss your options: 516-900-7877.
