When a drug plan has transferred their book of enrollees to another drug plan (with permission from Medicare), you will receive notification from the new carrier with a suggested replacement plan to cover you for the upcoming year. ALWAYS make sure that you review your options on www.Medicare.gov to confirm whether the suggested plan or another plan will provide the appropriate drug plan coverage for you. In the case of one of my clients, that was not the best plan for him, so we are moving him to another plan with that new carrier.
Make sure you review your Medicare Advantage or stand-alone drug plan coverage for 2013 to ensure that you have the appropriate coverage for YOUR specific needs. Remember, Medicare Advantage plans and stand-alone drug plans can change what they cover and their copays each year.
