Medicare's Annual Enrollment Period
October 15 - December 7
     This is your once-a-year chance to reevaluate and perhaps change your prescription drug plan for 2015. Your prescription needs may have changed and, as we have learned in the past, the prescription drug plans take this opportunity to make significant changes to their rules, formularies and pricing. The plan that was best for you this year might not be the best for you next year. The only way to know is to use Medicare's Prescription Drug Plan Finder located at on the internet. Our counselors will be happy to run this program for you. Just call, after October 1st, and schedule a one hour meeting.

     Last year 197 people changed their plans and saved a total of $135,876.
