Medicare beneficiaries may join or change Medicare Prescription Drug Plans from November 15 through December 31, 2009.
There are a total of 46 plans offered by 19 companies for 2010.
There are several important changes to the standard benefit for 2010, but individual plans are also making significant changes.
Many plans are changing their premiums, their deductibles and co-pays, and the drugs the plans cover.
Medicare Prescription Drug Plans were required to send an “Annual Notice of Change” (ANOC) to beneficiaries explaining the changes by October 31, 2009.
It is very important that seniors read and understand this notice.
Seniors wanting assistance with comparisons on the Medicare website or with understanding their “Annual Notice of Change” can contact Connie Dvorak, a trained SHIIP counselor.
SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program) is coordinated within the State of Nebraska Department of Insurance.
SHIIP counselors do not recommend policies, companies, or insurance agents but do provide information to consumers to allow them to make educated choices.
All counseling sessions are free, unbiased, and confidential. Please call Connie Dvorak at the Homestead Service Coordinator’s office (843-2280) for an appointment.
