Important reminder for Medicare beneficiaries

Important reminder for Medicare beneficiaries

Open enrollment for prescription drugs and health plans ends Friday

All Medicare beneficiaries who have not reviewed their coverage should do so before Friday, the deadline for selecting their coverage for 2011, the state Department of Health and Senior Services announced Tuesday.

Open enrollment allows Medicare beneficiaries, including people with Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan, to review their current health and prescription drug coverage, compare health and drug plan options and costs, and select the best possible coverage.

It is important to review and make changes, if desired, during the open enrollment period because most plans have changed their benefit packages, drug formularies and premiums, deductibles or co-pay amounts since last year. In addition, 15 Medicare Advantage plans and 14 Part D prescription drug plans available this year will no longer be offered in 2011.
