Medicare Annual Open Enrollment Period is Now Open!

PDF has received another important update from the Parkinson’s Action Network (PAN) about the Medicare Annual Open Enrollment Period. Here are some tips from PAN on your drug plan options.

From PAN

Every year, Medicare beneficiaries have the opportunity to enroll in or change their drug plan.   The Annual Enrollment Period for Part D opened on October 15 and runs through December 7, 2011.  The costs and benefits of each plan, about which you can learn more at the link below, vary from year-to-year.  It is important for beneficiaries to carefully review their options and make the best choices for the coming year. Coverage begins for enrollees in January 2012. 

This guide, co-sponsored by PAN and distributed by Medicare Access for Patients Rx (MAPRx), is an excellent resource that addresses frequently asked questions regarding open enrollment. For additional information about enrolling in or changing prescription drug plans, visit Medicare’s Open Enrollment Center.

PAN is the voice of the Parkinson's community in Washington, DC.  In 2011, PDF is supporting PAN with a grant of $200,000.
