Medicare beneficiaries should always review during Annual Enrollment (10-15 to 12-7) their new plan coverages for the upcoming year.
Medicare supplements don’t change, premiums can change due to birthday, age range change, annual increase in rates by the carrier.
What can/does change are stand-alone drug plans and Medicare Advantage HMO plans. Sometimes it is only a few little changes to your benefit; however, sometimes the changes are increases in copays, cost of drugs, etc.
Take the time to review the plan changes sent to you by your current carrier in September so that you will be fully aware of what to expect for 2014.
