Beginning today, October 1st, Medicare beneficiaries can talk with their broker/agents regarding what has changed with their current Medicare coverage and whether another plan may better fit their current medical and financial situation.
Remember, Medicare supplements/Medigap policies are defined by Medicare and do not change during Annual Enrollment. What can change are Medicare Advantage (HMO) Plans and stand-alone drug plan coverages for 1/1/2013.
As of today, the Medicare.gov website is up and running with 2013 plan information.
Make sure if you are on Medicare plans that you review what your coverage will be with your current plan for 2013 and then check out what other plans are offering to make sure you have the best coverage for your specific medical and financial needs.
