What You Need to Know About Medicare Advantage Enrollment {Interview}

Annual Enrollment Period for Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans is October 15 through December 7, with Plans Going into Effect January 1, 2018

Selecting the right health and prescription drug plans is crucial, and plans can change every year. The annual enrollment period is here, and it’s the time of year when people with Medicare can select the Medicare Advantage health plan or prescription drug plan best suited for them. Humana is committed to helping Hispanic Baby Boomers achieve their best health so that they can continue to pursue what is most important to them. Choosing the plan that’s right for you or your loved one can seem overwhelming, so it is important to stay informed.

 Join me in a recent interview with Jeffrey Fernandez as he shares more details about choosing the right plan this enrollment season. He will also share data from a brand new survey of Boomers, revealing their health concerns and habits, as well as their experiences choosing Medicare plans and more.

 Things to keep in mind when selecting a plan:

  • Costs (premiums, deductibles and copayments, and maximum out-of-pocket limits).
  • Doctor and hospital networks.
  • The list of medications Medicare prescription drug plans cover.
  • Changes to current plans.
  • Differences between Original Medicare and MA plans.
