Open Enrollment - Toni Corbin
Open enrollment is a very important time of year for our seniors, when making a decision about Medicare open enrollment it really comes down to the value that seniors are getting. This is the time of year for seniors to enroll or make changes to their Medicare or Medicare Advantage Health Plan and to select a primary care doctor from local providers like Southwest Medical. If you are already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan you can switch during the open enrollment period.
If you are completely new to Medicare, that is turning 65 or retiring, you will have an initial enrollment period near your birthday or retirement date instead.
