Why Change Plans?
Life changes; so your Medicare coverage might need a tune up.
The right choice two years ago may not be the best choice for you today. Why do people change plans? Here are some reasons:
Your health conditions change.
Your prescription drugs change.
Your doctor is no longer in the network your plan requires you to use.
Your premiums have gone up.
Your out of pocket expenses are higher than you thought they would be.
There is a new plan available in your area that seems to offer a better price for the same or similar benefits.
You lost retiree health benefits from your employer.
The government sets specific rules about when you can change plans for Medicare Advantage and Part D Prescription Drugs. Anyone can change Medicare Advantage and Part D plans during the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). It occurs from Oct. 15 - Dec. 7.
Shop Medicare plans carefully and compare. Make sure you understand how your cost, coverage and choices might change with a new plan. It can be confusing since it's not something you frequently buy. So, ask for the help of a professional who specializes in Medicare plans and get Medicare health plan quotes for multiple plans and compare monthly costs as well as out of pocket costs.
Before you drop your current plan, first make sure your new policy is in effect.
