Medicare’s Part D Annual Enrollment Period

October 15 – December 7

This is your once-a-year chance to reevaluate and perhaps change your prescription drug plan for 2018. 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 best for you next year. The only way to know is to use Medicare’s Prescription Drug Plan Finder located at Medicare.gov on the internet. Our counselors will be happy to run this program for you. Just call 203-594-3620 after October 1st and schedule a one hour meeting.
Last year our Counselors met with 426 people; 184 of those people changed their plans, saving a total of $125,617!
