The 2019 Medicare Open Enrollment period is from October 15 to December 7. During this Open Enrollment Period (OEP) you can make changes to various aspects of your coverage. If you need assistance, don’t wait!
To make an appointment, please call Shari at The Thompson and bring the following information to your scheduled appointment:
¨ Your new Medicare card for those who have received them. Bring your old card if you have not.
¨ Current 2018 Medicare Part D card or Medicare Advantage Card
¨ A list of prescription medications including drug name, dosage amount and quantity for a month’s use.
You should ask these questions to prepare for the OEP:
¨ Is the cost (premium) of my plan changing?
¨ Will my plan still cover the drugs I need?
¨ Are there any drug restrictions?
¨ How does my plan coordinate with any state or federal benefits, if I receive these? (Examples: V-Pharm, Extra Help-Low Income Subsidy, or Medicaid)
¨ Is there a plan that fits my needs better than my current one?
