The Medicare Annual Election Period is Here: Are You Covered?  

Each year, we urge you to review your Medicare coverage to ensure it’s still the right plan for you. Your needs may have changed, and the Medicare plan you’re on may have changed. Either way, it’s smart to review your plan to ensure you’re on the best plan for you. Capper’s Insurance Service can help you review your plan and understand your options.

The Medicare Annual Election Period is October 15 through December 7th.               

This is the time of year to enroll in or switch your Medicare Advantage or Part D Prescription Drug plans. Make sure you don’t miss this deadline.

This is the time for you to:

  • Review Medicare plan changes
  • Evaluate your Medicare plan’s co-pay and deductible changes
  • Switch your Medicare coverage plan, if needed. For example, anyone with original Medicare can switch to a Medicare Advantage plan. Or you can disenroll from a Medicare Advantage plan and enroll in Original Medicare and a Medicare Supplement insurance policy. It’s important to keep in mind that enrollment in a new Medicare Supplement policy will be subject to eligibility requirements.
  • Enroll in or switch to a new Medicare Advantage or Part D Prescription Drug plan, if needed.

Any changes to your Medicare Advantage or Part D plan will go into effect January 1.
