  1. Open Season for Medicare


    October 30, 2011 by Milton Jones

    Open Season is just around the corner, and I’m not talking about hunting season. With Medicare coverage, it’s a time when we may change our Part “D” Prescription plan, or Medicare Advantage plan for the coming year. Actually, the correct language is “Annual Election Period,” or AEP for short. In the past, the AEP began Nov. 15 and ended Dec. 31. This year, the season opens Oct. 15 and closes Dec. 7. Any changes made will then take effect on Jan. 1, 2012. This time lag allows more time for processing your changed enrollment and getting your new cards out to you in the U.S. Mail.
