October is the start of the busy season for Medicare agents as we gear up for Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) that begins on October 15. Seniors who are already enrolled in Medicare are receiving the Annual Notice of Change that explains any and all changes coming to their Medicare plan(s) for the 2021 calendar year. The time leading up to AEP is important because it’s an opportunity to review your current coverage to make sure that it’s right for you.
During AEP October 15-December 7, 2020, seniors may drop or switch their Medicare health and drug coverage. Any changes made will take effect on January 1, 2021. Read What You Need to Know About Medicare Annual Enrollment Period 2021 for a list of the changes that Medicare enrollees may make during AEP.
Medicare insurance agents at Premier Benefit Consultants are available now to provide a free review of your current Medicare insurance plan. Our goal is to help seniors review the upcoming changes to their plan(s), along with their current health needs and budget to ensure that they are on the best possible plan for their needs.
