Share Article

Benefits Information Group in Monroe, Connecticut educates consumers about their Medicare Advantage options. Medicare Annual Open Enrollment begins October 15th, 2012, with new benefit choices taking effect on January 1st, 2012.

During the upcoming Medicare annual enrollment period, October 15th through December 7th, all Medicare beneficiaries may change their Medicare coverage for the coming year. This includes anyone using traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage and prescription drug coverage. Benefits Information Group has comprehensive information available to Medicare beneficiaries about the changes to the different Medicare plans in 2013 and stresses the importance of early planning to receive the lowest possible cost for Medicare coverage.

"You have several options and our help costs you nothing," explained Gregory Judd, owner of Benefits Information Group. "We are here to help you carefully review your Medicare coverage from this year and evaluate any changes you expect in 2013 to look for more affordable coverage through a different combination of plans. If you have any questions about your current Medicare coverage or about switching plans for 2013, give us a call. We are here to help you choose the option that best meets your specific needs and lifestyle."

In addition to reviewing Medicare plan changes, Benefits Information Group recommends that beneficiaries make sure they are taking advantage of savings provided through the Affordable Care Act, a healthcare law that helps reduce prescription drug costs and increases preventative medical services for Medicare beneficiaries.

In 2013, individuals who reach the initial prescription drug coverage limit can receive a 50 percent discount on covered brand name drugs as they did in 2012, as well as 2.5 percent of coverage now paid by plans. Generic drug discounts increase from 14 percent to 21 percent. 2013 will also bring changes in Medicare Part B coverage, Prescription Drug Part D and in Medicare Advantage plans.
