Have you been waiting to make changes to your Medicare Prescription Drug or Medicare Advantage plan? The long-awaited official period of change is quickly approaching. The Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) is the time to make the adjustments to your plan that will complement your health needs.
The Annual Enrollment Period runs from October 15, 2014, through December 7, 2014. During this time, lean on experts for advice and utilize a local, valuable resource: the SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) Program.
This is the time to:
• Choose a plan that covers your medications.
• Switch Prescription Drug Plans or Advantage Plans.
• Enroll for the first time if you did not enroll when you were first eligible
