Open Enrollment for Medicare Part D/Prescription Drug Plans and Medicare Advantage Plans coverage is from October 15th to December 7th, 2017. Enrollees should review their coverage to determine if any changes are needed. If a change is made, it goes into effect as of January 1, 2018.
During this annual enrollment period you can make changes to various aspects of your coverage. You can switch from Original Medicare to Medicare Advantage or vice versa. You can also switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another. You can switch from one Medicare Part D (prescription drug) plan to another.
And if you didn’t enroll in a Medicare Part D plan when you were first eligible, you can do so during the
general open enrollment, although a late enrollment penalty may apply. If you need assistance with this, please contact the Senior Center office.
