Time is Running Out to Change Medicare Plan

Time is ticking to review your Medicare Part D Plan for 2011 and make any changes. The end of Medicare prescription drug annual open enrollment is fast approaching. If you want to change your Medicare drug plan or Medicare advantage health plan, do it by December 31, 2010.

      Extension agents and counselors have been extremely busy helping individuals with Medicare compare drug plans to find a plan that covers their drugs with the least restrictions and at the lowest cost.  Many people will save significant amounts of money by changing drug plans.                    

      Are you still wondering if the drug plan you had in 2010 is the best one for you in 2011?  At this point in time, the fastest way to compare plans is to call Medicare at 1-800-Medicare, or 1-800-633-4227.  If you press “0″each time you hear a recording, you will get a live person faster.  Have your list of drugs and Medicare card handy.  You can enroll in a new Medicare drug plan with the Medicare representative until midnight December 31.
