Earlier Open Enrollment for Medicare
Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens (AASC) encourages Medicare participants to take advantage of the earlier open enrollment this year.
The enrollment period for the 2012 Part D Plans will begin on October 15, 2011 and end on December 7, 2011. This is a change from years past when you were able to enroll between November 15 and December 31. All changes must be made by December 7, 2011.
New prescription drug and health plan choices are offered every year. You could save money, get better coverage, or both. It is worth the time to compare, let Medicare help. For more information on Medicare Open Enrollment log on to www.medicare.gov or by calling 1-800-Medicare (1-877-486-2048).
