Medicare open enrollment begins this Saturday, October 15, and runs through December 7. I really encourage everyone with a Medicare Part D plan (prescription drug plan) to review your current plan and compare it to other plans. Open enrollment is the only time you can make a change.
Every year plans change their drug lists, and premium prices change, so you might find a more economical plan. It is easy to compare plans at www.medicare.gov. If you don’t have computer access, you can get help from the benefits counselors at the Area Agency on Aging in Tarrant County by calling 817-258-8125. If you aren’t in Tarrant County, the North Central Texas Area Agency on Aging can be reached at 1-800-272-3921.
