Medicare annual enrollment period ends Saturday

For those who haven’t reviewed coverage for 2020, there is still time.

Saturday is the end of the annual Medicare enrollment period, when beneficiaries can change their coverage for the next year. Have you reviewed your options?

Whether you’re just entering the program as a 65-year-old or have been enrolled for years, beneficiaries should always double-check their plans, even if they choose to remain with an existing one. Even minor changes could mean some doctors may no longer be part of the network, or specific prescription medication may become more expensive or not be covered at all.
