Attention Medicare beneficiaries – the Annual Enrollment Period has begun.
Starting October 15th of each year, Medicare releases its newly offered benefits and limitations for its sponsored plans. The AEP as it is known for short, is the one time of year Medicare eligible individuals enrolled in a standalone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan (PDP) or Medicare Advantage (MA) plan are allowed to review the new benefits and health insurance plan options and decide if a change is necessary.
Senior Services of Illinois, Inc. (SSI) and Consumers Direct Insurance Services, Inc. (CDIS) – independent, authorized senior general agents for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas – are ready for Medicare’s 2014 Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), which runs from October 15th through December 7th.
“We rigorously prepare and organize for the Medicare Open Enrollment Period months in advance,” said Scott Loochtan, President of SSI and CDIS, Inc. “Medicare beneficiaries all over the country anticipate this time of year to review and analyze their health plans so that they can secure the best options to meet their needs in the upcoming year.”
Health needs change from year to year and insurance plans may have also changed its benefits. That’s why it’s important to contact a licensed and certified insurance agent to help review the latest choices. SSI and CDIS’ agents possess the information and expertise that the average person does not by going through a stringent Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) and Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage (MA), continuing education and certification process each year in order to assist current and potential clients. This allows them to provide full service Medicare insurance plan solutions while making themselves available in a variety of ways through technology, over the phone or in person appointments.
Individuals who have been on Medicare for a few years know that the AEP is tedious and restrictive, and for those experiencing it for the first time it can be confusing. Although Medicare is inflexible with its time frame there is plenty of time to make the necessary changes before the December 7th end date.
“This is not the time to procrastinate,” noted Loochtan. “Trying to decipher all of this material and information alone can be daunting, and that is why we offer complimentary educational services to make the process that much easier.”
SSI’s and CDIS’ insurance agents are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 A.M. – 8:00 P.M. and weekend availability is also available upon request. To contact one of SSI or CDIS’ agents please use any of the following methods below.
