Helpful Hints

Did you know that if you’re unhappy with your Medicare Advantage Plan, there’s a Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment period from January 1 – March 31, 2022. 
If you’re in a Medicare Advantage Plan and want to change, you can do one of these:
· Switch to a different Medicare Advantage Plan – with or without drug coverage.
·  Go back to Original Medicare and join a Medicare Prescription Drug plan, if needed.
