3 Ways to Compare Medicare Plans During the Medicare Annual Election Period

You have options when it comes to finding and comparing Medicare plans before you choose the one you want for the following year. Even better: you don’t have to leave home for a single one of these options!

But first, we’ll share a quick refresher on the Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP), in case you’re new to Medicare or just don’t know about this enrollment period.

What is the Medicare Annual Election Period?

This yearly enrollment period occurs from October 15 through December 7 and during this time Medicare beneficiaries can enroll and disenroll from Medicare Advantage (Part C) and Medicare Prescription Drug (Part D) Plans for the following year. You are not required to change plans during the Medicare Annual Election Period, but it can be a great opportunity to find new benefits, save money, or leave a plan that’s not working for you.

Here are three ways you can go about finding your coverage for next year!

1. Call a Licensed Agent

A no-cost telephone consultation is a common way to review coverage during the Medicare Annual Election Period. easyMedicare.com licensed agents can help you evaluate the merits of various Medicare plans in your area, discussing benefits, costs, physician networks, and prescription coverage. When you find a plan you want, the agent can enroll you in that plan right over the phone. This consultation and enrollment have no extra cost to you — just the premium of the plan. You may even be able to find a plan with a $0 premium!

You can usually find all the information about different Medicare plans online yourself, but an agent may help you to do that more quickly. They may also know about benefits or savings you don’t know to look for.

2. Chat with a Licensed Agent Online

easyMedicare.com licensed agents are also available via the chat function that appears on our website. This secure, no-cost chat is another way to find, compare, and enroll in a Medicare plan with the assistance of a Medicare professional.
