"Should I Review My Medicare Coverage?" Look for These Three Red Flags


Each fall, Medicare beneficiaries receive an Annual Notice of Changes to Medicare Advantage or Part D prescription drug plans for in the coming year—drug formularies, provider networks, pharmacy networks, premiums, deductibles, out-of-pocket costs, and more. As a result, Medicare gives people the right to switch plans during the annual Open Enrollment Period (Oct. 15-Dec. 7).

Should you review your Medicare coverage? Look for the Red Flags.

Please take a moment to answer the following three questions:

  1. Do your take any brand-name drugs?
  2. Have you changed or added any medications and/or physicians in the past year?
  3. Have you had the same Medicare plan for two or more years?

If you can answer yes to any of these three questions, it is strongly recommended that you review your Medicare coverage for the coming year. Remember, people who review their Medicare coverage often save hundreds of dollars or more on their Medicare coverage in the coming year.
