Caregivers: the Medicare Annual Election Period is almost over
The Medicare Annual Election period ends December 7. People can switch their Medicare Plans until then. This may be a good option for seniors with Original Medicare Part A and Part B. Seniors may not be able to make changes after December 7.
Many seniors consider switching when:
- Their health needs have changed in the past year
- They want to budget for healthcare costs
- They want to choose a different doctor or medical group
- They want to add hearing, dental, or vision coverage
