Open Enrollment Center

Medicare's fall open enrollment is from November 15th to December 31, 2007. Now is the time for people with Medicare to enroll in a drug plan, review their health care and drug coverage, and make changes. There's even extra help available for people with limited income and resources. The extra help is worth up to $3,600 for some people to help pay for their drug coverage.  
It's important for all people with Medicare to complete their yearly Medicare Enrollment Review. They can follow these three important steps:

  1. Prepare - Take time to gather information they'll need to make a decision about their health and prescription drug coverage (medication list, provider list, any notice they received from Medicare, Social Security or their plan about changes to their plan)
  2. Compare - Compare plans in their area on cost, coverage, and customer service.
  3. Decide - Decide which plan is best for them.

You'll find helpful Medicare tools and information on this page. Use these resources to compare the cost or benefits of Medicare health or prescription drug plans in your area. Get answers to your Medicare questions. Learn how to lower health care costs and stay healthy. Find out about Medicare events in your community.
