For people with Medicare, September is traditionally a time to review their current plan. Taking a quick couple of minutes to chat about Medicare with me is different from the Annual Enrollment Period, which this year runs from Sunday, October 15, to Thursday, December 7.

I’d like to invite you to spend just a few minutes on the phone, via video call or in person to do a quick review of your current standing. How did you feel about your Medicare plan over the last year? Did your plan meet your needs and budget? Are you on new medications? Do you have new doctors?

This information can help you understand if you need to make changes and prepare for the Annual Enrollment Period. As new Medicare plans are introduced, I can keep an eye out for some of the options that might be a good fit for your individual situation. Then, when the Annual Enrollment Period begins, I can present those options to you so you can make the selection that makes the most sense for you.

Right about now, you’ve probably received your Annual Notification of Change (ANOC) from your Medicare Advantage Plan and prescription drug plan. This notification details changes to your plan that may or may not impact you. During your plan review, we can talk about these changes and your current or potential health care needs.

By preparing now for the Annual Enrollment Period, you’ll be informed ahead of time. And, as always, my guidance is available at no cost. I look forward to hearing from you.
