Anybody that is Medicare enrolled or Medicare eligible needs to know that the Medicare open enrollment period every year is October 15 – December 7. This is the window of time that the Federal government has set aside for you to make your planned election for effective date January 1, 2019.
We can start marketing product October 1 (I can start answering your questions October 1 going forward) and we can start writing policies on October 15. You can change your health plan and your prescription drug plan if it is necessary to do so. I strongly encourage you to be pro-active about educating yourself on where you want to be for January. This window of time goes quickly and we cannot make changes past the dates that are already in place per the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS). I am attaching this link for your convenience. If you want to read about it. Please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m here to help.
