Take Care of Your Physical, Mental & Financial Well-Being
Did you know that many people pay too much for Medigap Supplementary and Medicare Part D prescription policies simply because they don’t take the time to visit Medicare.gov between October 15 and December 7 each year? Deductibles go up and down, premiums vary, formularies change. Most people can change providers annually. To understand the basics of Medicare coverage, select this link.
Each year my husband, Michael, and I make it routine to check that our current Part D Prescription provider is still the best bang for the buck in our zip code. One year we saved over $200 on his annual premium. Other years we found important formulary changes that we could discuss with our primary care physicians.
The Medicare Plan Finder is ready with all of the 2019 health and drug plan cost information to make reviewing your options as easy as possible. You can do a general search by entering just a ZIP code. For a more personalized experience, you can log in with your Medicare number or use your MyMedicare account. Or you may find a free local event—somewhere right around the corner, with health insurance counselors to help you, like your State Health Insurance Assistance Program. Don’t miss the chance to get personalized help!
