Thanksgiving weekend has been a traditional time for discussion and consideration of Medicare Part D plans. This year, as families gather, both Medicare beneficiaries and younger family members may be considering their various healthcare coverage options. It’s a great thing to do because plans and coverage needs can and do change from year to year!
The tools Medicare has provided on its website, www.medicare.gov, have become even more streamlined and user friendly over the years, and surveys consistently show that those of us who use them appreciate that convenience as well as the coverage we receive.
So, if you haven’t already done so, take a break from that post-turkey-dinner nap, non-stop football, or Black Friday shopping and go over your Part D coverage! Don’t forget to also check out all of the resources that are available at www.SeniorsSpeakOut.org! They will get you prepared for the tasks at hand.
Remember, www.medicare.gov is ready and waiting all the time, and though Medicare’s call center is closed of Thanksgiving Day, you call them bright and early Friday morning or any other time including the weekend at 1-800-633-4227.
Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!
