This year the federal government has set the open enrollment period for October 15 – December 7, 2015. During this time you need to select which Medicare insurance coverage you are going to have for 2016.
Learning about Medicare options can be overwhelming. We would like to help you make an informed choice, one that makes the most sense for you and your health. Attend a free Medicare Open Enrollment Session at The Everett Clinic to learn about your options.
And, if you are just turning 65, be sure to attend our free informational sessions for a comprehensive look at what Medicare and Medicare Advantage offer.
The Everett Clinic Medicare Advocates can help answer your questions, or direct you to the right resource. You can call them at 425-258-3901.
Things to consider when choosing a Medicare health plan include:
- Can I continue seeing my Everett Clinic Primary Care Physician on the health plan I am considering?
- Are my prescriptions covered by this plan?
- Is my pharmacy in this plan’s network?
- Am I able to get the care I want for a cost I can afford?
- Does this plan include the benefits that are most important to me?
Additional information about Medicare options, including what is covered under Medicare Parts A and B, may be found at the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner or call 1-800-562-6900 or the local SHIBA at 425-290-1276.
