Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (Oct 15 – Dec 7, 2017) is quickly approaching, and now is the time to review your drug coverage and decide if you want to make any changes for 2018. You should receive your Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) by October 1, 2017. Be sure to review:
- Monthly premium
- Covered or discontinued drugs
- Preferred pharmacies
Remember, Part D plans change every year, so it is very important to review your plan before deciding to keep or switch carriers. If you are satisfied with the changes and coverage, you do not need to contact us; your plan will automatically renew in the New Year.
How do I change my Part D plan for 2018?
If you would like to research the drug plans available to you, the Medicare website (www.medicare.gov) provides an online tool to help you determine a Part D prescription drug plan that will meet your needs. We have also included instructions for using the online tool here – it is a fairly simple process for those who have internet access and are comfortable using the computer.
If you would like our assistance, we are always happy to assist you in choosing new coverage. Currently, we represent the following Part D Providers:
