Annual Enrollment Period is for Medicare Beneficiaries who have a Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage plan currently in place. From October 15 – December 7 beneficiaries may review their current plan, other options from their carrier or other carriers. If a change is made to another plan or carrier it will be effective January 1, 2012 for the calendar year.
Along with this enrollment period, the Federal Government recently released some 2012 details for Medicare beneficiaries.
Part B Premium for ALL eligible will be $99.90 beginning 1/1/2012
All those receiving Social Security will enjoy a 3.6% increase
Look for that to begin 1/1/2012 as well
I am a licensed agent, apppointed with A rated carriers for the lines of Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans in the state of Iowa. My goal is to ‘educate Medicare beneficiaries to make informed choices’. If you haven’t met with an agent recently are are confused about Medicare and what is available, let’s find a mutually convenient time to meet.
