3 reasons to review & compare Medicare plans

Medicare’s Open Enrollment ends December 7. Even if you’re happy with your current Medicare coverage, it’s important to know your Medicare coverage options for 2021. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Your needs may change. You may find you’re going to the doctor more or less often, the prescription drugs you take may be different, or you may need better access to health care services.
  2. Benefits can vary. Not all Medicare coverage options offer the same benefits. Plan benefits can change from year-to-year.
  3. New, more affordable Medicare plans may be available. The total cost, provider network, and services offered are different between plans. Review plans to see if other plan options could better meet your news or lower your out-of-pocket costs.

Review your current Medicare plan & check for changes

Does your current Medicare plan offer the benefits you need? Review your health or drug plan’s information and note any changes in costs or benefits that will happen in 2021. If you have other types of health or prescription drug coverage, make sure you understand how that coverage works with Medicare.

Compare Medicare health & drug plans

Each year, plans can make changes to the items and services they cover and what you pay. Decide if your current Medicare plan will meet your health care needs for the year ahead. If you like your current Medicare coverage and it’s still available for 2021, you don’t need to do anything.

New plan options may be available to you. If you take insulin, this Open Enrollment you may be able to get a Medicare plan that offers broad access to many types of insulin for no more than $35 for a 30-day supply. You can get savings on insulin if you join a Medicare drug plan or Medicare Advantage Plan with drug coverage that participates in the insulin savings model. You can choose among plans that offer insulin at a predictable and affordable cost. Select the “insulin savings” filter in Medicare Plan Finder to find plans that participate in this new model that can help you save on your insulin costs.
