Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period Begins October 15th

It’s that time of year again. Your mailbox is probably being bombarded with sales letters and every time you turn on the TV all you see are Medicare commercials. That’s right. It’s Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period, which is an important opportunity for you to review your Medicare benefits and make any changes for the upcoming year.

The Annual Enrollment Period is a short window of time that only comes once a year and allows you to enroll in or switch to another Medicare Advantage plan like Viva Medicare. It runs from October 15 – December 7. If you are currently on a Medicare Advantage plan, you should have received your Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) from your current provider by now. The ANOC highlights what changes have been made to your premiums, copayments, and benefits for the upcoming year.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received from your plan in 2015 and would like to learn more about your options, contact Viva Medicare today. You can call us at 1-888-830-VIVA (8482) (TTY Users call 711) or swing by a Viva Health Café in Birmingham, Hoover, Montgomery, Mobile, the Shops at Grand River or the downtown Welcome Center on 20th Street North!
