Medicare: Part C coverage open enrollment will end Dec. 7

If you need to enroll in Medicare, there are only a few days remaining to complete the task.

Many people do nothing if they’re already enrolled and just renew their plan the next year. This means those with a plan in 2021 will see the same plan in 2022.

It’s suggested that you at least look at the details of your terms and conditions during open enrollment to make sure everything is the way you want it for the next year.

While open enrollment is happening, you’re able to adjust your plan or switch to Medicare Part C.

If you do this, you’ll be on a plan run by a private company that typically offers better coverage. These companies and plans are pre-approved by Medicare.

Open enrollment started Oct. 15 and goes until Dec. 7, this Tuesday.

If you accidentally miss the open enrollment period, there’s a Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period from Jan. 1 to March 31, 2022.

This lets people already on Medicare Part C plans change some things.

Major life changes may also allow for someone to change their benefits as well.

If you have a chance, it’s best to review the details of your plan this weekend before the deadline passes next week.
