Seniors who are not completely satisfied with their current Medicare plan still have time to change plans before the current Open Enrollment Period ends March 31, 2009.

Medicare has specific rules about making plan changes during open enrollment. People with Medicare may switch from their current plan to a different plan by matching the same plan type they chose during the Annual Election Period. They may switch only one time during the Open Enrollment Period.

The differences between plans and the labyrinth of Medicare rules can sometimes be incomprehensible and overwhelming. To ensure that they are choosing the correct plan with the best benefits and at the lowest cost, seniors can seek expert help in Medicare supplement plans, such as the brokers at http://www.MedicareSupplementPlans.com. Also available through the site are printable brochures and applications, allowing for comparisons between insurance companies and various Medicare supplement plan benefits and rates as well as a convenient way to start the application process.

According to Sheila Smith, 65, of Ventura, Calif., working with a broker at http://www.MedicareSupplementPlans.com made it easy to "change from my old insurance to the new…This was a good move for me, and I feel confident that if problems come up, I can call…and get it taken care of."

Another good source of information about the Open Enrollment Period is to contact Medicare at http://www.Medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.
