Time’s running out to make changes to your Medicare coverage for 2020! Medicare Open Enrollment ends December 7.

3 reasons to compare your Medicare coverage for 2020 during open enrollment

Even if you’re happy with your current Medicare coverage, it’s important to know your options for the upcoming year. Here’s why it could be beneficial to change your Medicare coverage:

  1. Needs change. Maybe your trips to the doctor are more/less frequent, prescriptions have changed, or you need more access to health care services.
  2. Benefits vary. Not all Medicare coverage options offer the same benefits and what each plan offers can change from year to year.
  3. New, more affordable Medicare plans may be available. Consider a plan’s total cost, provider network, and services offered.

Compare Medicare health and prescription drug plans for 2020

Use our Medicare Plan Finder to compare Medicare coverage options and find 2020 health and prescription drug plans now. There may be other health and prescription drug plans available that better meet your needs for the year ahead.

If you like your current health care coverage and it’s still available for 2020, you don’t need to do anything. But if you want to change your Medicare coverage, you only have a few days left. Medicare Open Enrollment is almost over.
