Making the switch to a new Medicare plan can be daunting, especially if you’re used to having the same coverage for years. But if your needs have changed or you’re simply not happy with your current plan, it may be time for a change. Open enrollment for Medicare runs from October 15 to December 7 each year, so now is the time to start thinking about your options.
According to a recent U.S. News article, there are a few things you should consider before making the switch:
- First, think about why you’re considering a change. If your needs have changed or you’re simply not happy with your current plan, it may be time for a change.
- Second, take into account any changes in your health. If you’ve had a major change in your health, such as a heart attack or cancer diagnosis, you may need to switch to a Medicare Advantage plan that offers more comprehensive coverage.
- Third, consider your budget. Make sure you compare the costs of various plans before making a decision.
- Finally, think about your prescription drug coverage. If you take medication regularly, you’ll want to make sure your new plan covers your drugs.
