The last day for the Medicare Annual open enrollment period for 2021 is today (December 7th).
During this period you can also make changes to your existing Medicare plan.
If you apply for Medicare during this period of open enrollment, officials say coverage will begin on January 1 of 2021.
Medicare is the United States' health insurance program for those age 65 and over, but some people younger than 65 are eligible to sign up for the benefits.
Medicare Open Enrollment is almost over. If you’re thinking about changing your Medicare plan today is the last day to take these actions:
Change how you get your Medicare coverage—Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan
Switch Medicare Advantage Plans (with or without drug coverage)
Join, switch, or drop a Medicare drug plan
Even if you’re happy with your current health coverage, it’s important to know your Medicare coverage options and compare other health and drug plans during Open Enrollment. You may find Medicare coverage that better meets your needs for the upcoming year.
