Open enrollment in the Medicare Advantage Program is ending today. Medicare Advantage is an alternative way to get Medicare benefits. Kris Gross with the Senior Health Insurance Information Program says any change that is made during this enrollment period will become effective the first of the year.
She adds those who have Medicare Advantage should review the premium, deductibles, co-payments, additional benefits, and drug coverage to see if the plan is meeting your needs. Gross says Elizabeth Koehn at Washington County Hospital and Clinics is a volunteer with the SHIIP program and can help anyone wanting to know more about Medicare insurance coverage.
