2016 Medicare Annual Enrollment

AEP picture

The Medicare Annual enrollment period started October 15th, 2016. Now is the time when ALL Medicare beneficiaries can review their current Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage plan for the next calendar year and also enroll into a new plan.

People in a Medicare health or prescription drug plan should always review the materials their plans send them, like the “Evidence of Coverage” (EOC) and “Annual Notice of Change” (ANOC). If their plans are changing, they should make sure their plans will still meet their needs for the following year. If they’re satisfied that their current plans will meet their needs for next year and it’s still being offered, they don’t need to do anything.
