If you are 65 or older, please take note. We have limited timelines set by the Federal Government for our Part D prescription drug plans and changes for January 2016.
The annual enrollment period (you will see the acronym AEP) is October 15 – December 7, 2015 for coverage effective date of January 1, 2016. What that means is we can check your drug list and ensure that you have the right plan fit for the prescriptions you’re currently taking. This could save you a lot of money in deductibles and co-pays throughout the year.
Follow this link to MedicareBlue Solutions and if you click on “Learn”, you will see a countdown to Medicare which is going to explain to you how this Medicare enrollment process works, how you get Part A (hospital coverage) and Part B (medical coverage) of your Medicare and if you scroll down, it will address Part D of your Medicare which is your prescription drug plan.
This, I assure you, will be as clear as mud. If you feel overwhelmed or confused, please raise your hand, because if you’re honest with yourself, everybody is confused. I am here to help you and am a mere phone call away. This is one of the most concise and easy to read references that I am aware of. After you read this and get a general idea of where you’re at, call me, because everybody’s situation is different and I will be happy to guide you through the process. Don’t forget these dates: October 15 – December 7, 2015 for coverage effective dates of January 1, 2016.
