"Medicare beneficiaries need to be aware of the date change this year, and carefully review all of their options in time to make a decision by December 7.
While reviewing your options, you may be attracted to low-cost drug plans or Medicare Advantage plans, but it is very important to read the fine print. Depending on your health status and the plan's rules and restrictions, you may discover that the low-cost plan will actually cost you more than a plan with a higher premium."
"The new right to enroll in a five-star plan once at any time during the year shouldn't make beneficiaries complacent about choosing a plan during Fall Open Enrollment.
We recommend putting the time in now to review your options, ask questions, and choose the plan that is the best fit for you."
