It’s Medicare open enrollment time! Dr. Meena Seshamani, Director for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services has information about everything you need to know about the Medicare open enrollment period.
This week on TALK! with AUDREY: JONATHAN BLUM, Principal Deputy Administrator, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is my guest. Medicare Open Enrollment is the time when people with Medicare are encouraged to review their current health and prescription drug coverage and changes in costs and benefits that will take effect for 2014. This year’s annual Medicare Open Enrollment period, which began on October 15, is ending on December 7 so there isn’t much time left. If you want to change your health and prescription drug coverage for next year, doing it during this period will ensure your new coverage can begin without interruption on January 1, 2014.
