Annual Enrollment Period


Annual Enrollment Period

The Medicare Annual Enrollment is your time to enroll or make changes to existing Medicare or Medicare Advantage Plan. It allows you to select a health plan that’s built around your health care needs. You can also select a provider from a list of local quality providers here in Southern Nevada. The OptumCare Network of Nevada and Southwest Medical invite you to choose a health plan that’s built around your needs. If you are al-ready enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, you can switch during the open enroll-ment period. If you are completely new to Medicare, turning 65, or retiring you will have an initial enrollment period near your birthday or retirement date.

And I have more news, Senior Dimensions is changing its name to UnitedHealthcare Medicare Focus in 2019. So, what does that mean for you if you are an existing patient? Simply, no changes are necessary. You’re going to continue to receive the same qual-ity, comprehensive health care from your provider. The OptumCare Network of Nevada is proud to include Southwest Medical. The Southwest Medical Network offers access to over 370 local health care providers and access to over 1,200 additional primary and specialty care providers throughout Southern Nevada. It means you’ll have more choices, with the same health care services and support. And you’ll have access to more area hospitals.

That’s why the Medicare Annual Enrollment period is so important — it gives you a chance to select the right health plan that will suit your health care needs. Remember the deadline is just a few short days away on December 7. Call the number you see here to speak with an independent local, insurance agent for the expert advice you will need. If you already have an insurance agent we recommend you contact them and dis-cuss your options.
