Medicare Enrollment: Stop, Look & Listen

It’s Medicare Annual Enrollment time again! So are you looking at a ton of information and videos online, and reviewing stacks of sales materials from insurance companies? Too much information can cause more questions than answers and more confusion than common sense.

Medicare was offered in 1966 to provide security and peace of mind, not to cause you to lose your mind, patience or money. Making a hasty decision because you are overwhelmed or confused by all of the Medicare information floating around can lead to problems.

So instead, stop, look and listen to what your current Medicare plan is saying. If it is reasonably successful or effective, there is no need to change or replace it. Just stick with the plan!

But if you decide to make a change to your existing Medicare Advantage plan, prescription drug plan or Original Medicare Part A and Part B, you can do so from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7.

The peace of mind that comes with understanding is priceless. So for more information, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 or visit Check with Medicare at 1-800-633-4227 or to learn about Medicare premiums, late enrollment penalties and Medicare insurance options available in your county.
