Medicare Open Enrollment  (October 15 - December 7)

Medicare Prescription Drug Plans and Medicare Advantage plans can change their premiums, deductibles, co-pays, formularies, & network providers every year.  Your opportunity to change plans is between October 15 - December 7 each year.  If you are looking for help navigating your options, the ADRC Benefits team is HERE to Help!  We provide unbiased information about how your plan compares with the plans available next year.  We will collect information from you, prepare a plan review and mail out a packet of information tailored to your needs. 

What can a plan review do for you? 

  • Make sure your list of prescriptions are covered. 
  • Get an estimate of what your prescriptions will cost under each plan.
  • Find out if your pharmacy is in the network
