Annual Medicare Open Enrollment is Here!

This is a time when you should review your current Medicare plan and assure that it still meets your health requirements.

Why is this review important for you to do when you are happy with your current plan?

This is the time that insurance companies make changes to their level of coverage which will take effect on January 1st . They may drop drugs from their formulary, this could mean that the medications you take may no longer be covered. They may change the tier level of your medications, increase premiums or the amount you pay at the drug store when you pick up a prescription. These items will all increase your cost. Your plan may no longer be the best plan for you.

What you can do to avoid any unnecessary increased cost for your coverage in the coming year?

You can sit with a SHINE volunteer to review your coverage and assure that you have the most appropriate coverage for you and your spouse for the coming year. Shine Volunteers are at the Osceola Council of Aging the first and Third Tuesday of every month from 10AM to 12PM. Please bring a list of all your medications and dosages with you for this review. The SHINE volunteer will provide free and unbiased advice to you as to what the best plans for you are.
