Medicare’s Open Enrollment is in Full Swing ~ Review Your Coverage Options for 2020

Medicare’s Fall Open Enrollment, officially known as the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) is in full swing. Running from October 15 – December 7, this is the time beneficiaries can change their Medicare health plan and Part D coverage and/or return to Original Medicare. Coverage changes become effective January 1, 2020.

Learn more about the AEP, the options you have and the changes you can make. Beneficiaries can also contact their local Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) for free counseling and information on their health care options in their area.
