Understanding Your Options

As a Medicare beneficiary, you have many options – perhaps even more options than when you chose a health plan through an employer or on your own. As you choose and use your plan, you may come across some unfamiliar terms. Below we include explanations that can help you better understand your Medicare Advantage plan.

Sign Up for CarePlus during the Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period

Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period, also known as open enrollment or the annual election period, takes place each year from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. During Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period, you can change your plan, purchase additional coverage, or disenroll from a Medicare plan for the upcoming year.

Healthcare needs can change. If you already have a Medicare plan but it’s not checking all your boxes, or if you just want to see if you’re missing out on any new coverage or benefits, the Medicare open enrollment period allows you to explore your options.
