The open enrollment period for Medicare is right around the corner.
Between November 15th and December 31st, people with Medicare can re-evaluate their plans to ensure they are receiving the most efficient coverage.
Professionals look at the prescriptions and needs of a patient to choose the best plan.
“Somebody can actually walk them through a program to help them find out what will meet their needs best. They can change their plan but if people are happy with their plan, they certainly don't have to do anything to make a change,” says Charlotte Pickens, Health Insurance Specialist.
Changes will be in effect at the start of the new year.
Pickens say this is the perfect time for people with limited resources to apply for extra assistance through the State Health Insurance Program.
