“Each year the plans change,” said Action for Older Persons HIICAP Coordinator Jane Talbot. “The plan that you had last year, the premiums change, the drug benefits change, the co-pays go up usually.” The enrollment period runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. Medicare covers more than 60 million Americans, meaning there are plenty of choices when it comes to picking a plan. Whether this is your first time enrolling, or you have been enrolling for years, you will want to set aside time to look over the new options.
