Medicare Open Enrollment is from October 15th – December 7th. Coverage and costs can change each year for health and drug plans. It is recommended that everyone who has Medicare check their coverage each year. You can search and compare plans at www.Medicare.gov . If you decided to make changes now, they would be effective January 1, 2016. Seniors Plus is another valuable resource. You can make an appointment to speak with one of their Medicare experts or visit their website at www.seniorsplus.org .
