Be prepared for Medicare open enrollment
Placeholder Image
MONROE - During the annual Medicare open enrollment period from Tuesday, Oct. 15 through Saturday, Dec. 7, Medicare beneficiaries should check their prescription drug and health plan coverage to assure they have the best possible coverage and choose a new plan if needed, advises staff from the Green County Aging and Disability Resource Center. Any plan or coverage changes that participants make will become effective Jan. 1. There is no cost to switch plans, but there may be much higher costs for prescriptions or health care scheduled to take effect in the new year.
