The Cass County COA is taking appointments for anyone with questions for the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Drug Plan open enrollment period, which runs October 15 through December 7. This is the time for those in the plan to change or cancel drug coverage for 2020.
If you’re in a Medicare Advantage plan, you may unenroll during the Medicare Advantage Disenrollment Period and return to Original Medicare. This period runs from January 1 to March 31, 2020.
It’s wise to check the plans to be sure that you are still in the one that benefits you the most. Choosing or changing a plan can be a difficult decision because there are a wide variety of plans available. Since individual needs vary widely, finding a good match is essential.
Anyone wishing to receive assistance with finding information and choosing a new plan can call the COA at (269) 445-8110 or (800) 323-0390. The COA has three Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program representatives available to help sort out the options and guide you through enrollment. Please make an appointment early to avoid any last-minute rush.
