3 Medicare Questions to Ask During Annual Enrollment

Medicare's Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) is Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. If you’re currently on a Medicare plan, you have the opportunity to switch to a new plan. If you choose to do so, your new plan will begin on Jan. 1. Here are three important Medicare questions to ask during AEP!

1. How well does my current Medicare plan meet my needs?

As you consider your current plan, have you thought about the following factors?

Does my Medicare plan work for my budget?

For example, are you paying high monthly premiums for a plan you barely use? 

Does my Medicare plan work for my health care needs?

Consider your current prescriptions, providers, and preferred hospitals, as well as how often you visit the doctor. Do you have the coverage you want and need for these services?

Would you like additional coverage such as vision, hearing, and dental?

Does my Medicare plan match my current lifestyle?

Your Medicare plan can (and should!) do more than cover your doctor’s appointments.

For example, would you prefer a plan that allows you to see any Medicare-approved provider in the United States, or are you happy with your current network?

2. What are my other Medicare plan options?

Your current health coverage may be working for your needs—and if that’s the case, fantastic! There’s no need to take action during AEP if you are happy with your plan.

On the other hand, if you’re considering your options or your circumstances are changing, we’re here to help you find the right coverage for your needs.

Our advisors can help you figure out what questions to ask about Medicare, walk you through your options, and tell you about plans that offer…

  • Low or $0 premiums
  • All-in-one coverage:
    • Medical, hospital, vision, hearing, dental, and prescription drugs
  • Budget-friendly benefits:
    • Grocery gift cards, flex-spending cards, and over-the-counter allowances

All of these benefits and more are available for Medicare beneficiaries in 2023.

3. Would I rather research Medicare plans on my own or with an advisor?

There’s no need to navigate Medicare alone. Our advisors can research your plan options, enroll you in coverage, and help you maximize your new benefits—all at no cost to you. We can help with your Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio Medicare benefits.
