The Medicare Open Enrollment period has begun!

Health News


The Medicare Open Enrollment period has begun! Each year from October 15 to December 7 Medicare beneficiaries may compare plans and make changes in their drug plan (Part D) or Medicare Advantage plan during this open enrollment period. Those changes will take effect on January 1.
Medicare drug plans are allowed to change their cost and coverage rules from year to year, so it is important to read the Annual Notice of Change received each year to see if there are any changes that affect you.
Plan changes may affect your monthly premium, deductible, out of pocket maximum, drug co-pays and your pharmacy, doctor or hospital choices. It is important that you review your plan options each year during open enrollment to make sure you are receiving the most affordable price and minimize out-of-pocket costs.
There are many trained senior health insurance counselors at the K-State Research & Extension Office in Newton and around Harvey County who are ready to help you free of charge.
