Medicare Fall Open Enrollment for 2015

October 15, 2014

The Medicare Fall Open Enrollment period for 2015 began on October 15, 2014 and shall end on December 7, 2014. During this open enrollment period, patients with Medicare can change their Medicare health plan and prescription drug coverage. Subsequently, the patient’s selected health plan coverage will start on January 1, 2015.

It is recommended that providers have a conversation with their patients to determine whether they intend to remain on their current Medicare health plan, whether they intend to enroll in a different one, and inform them of the Medicare plans their office will be accepting if there will be any changes. Patients can then make an informed decision about remaining with their current plan or selecting a different one during this enrollment period.

Should patients need more information related to this enrollment period, please advise them that they may call 1-800-MEDICARE or visit www.medicare.gov.
