We are in the open enrollment period for Medicare, which runs October 15 - December 7.
Medicare health and drug plans can make changes each year — things like cost, coverage, and what providers and pharmacies are in their networks. October 15 to December 7 is when all people with Medicare can change their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage for the following year to better meet their needs.
People can find Medicare plan information or compare plans by calling 1-800-MEDICARE or going online to Medicare.gov.
