As we get older, it’s common that our health status evolves and changes. Some years we may struggle with illness but other years may usher in a period of better health and stability. For those on Medicare, the upcoming open enrollment period allows you to re-evaluate your current health plan, to see if it makes sense going forward, especially if you can anticipate changes in your health or financial circumstances. Beginning on October 15, Medicare recipients have an opportunity to examine the varied options and policies available- including Medicare Advantage Plans, Prescription Drug Plans and other possible coverage options. It’s a good opportunity to re-evaluate your situation- but also a potentially confusing series of choices to consider. The National Council on Aging’s “My Medicare Matters” program has a useful set of questions and guidelines to help you sort through the options. To read their recommendations, check Here.
