One month is about to end, and a new one is just about to start, so it’s time to begin thinking about Medicare open enrollment in 2023. Since this is the specified period for any plan change, it is crucial to know when it starts and what changes can be made.
WHAT IS MEDICARE OPEN ENROLLMENT?
It’s a time frame when Medicare beneficiaries can switch to different plans per their requirement or make amendments to existing coverage. This period is also referred to as the Annual election period.
Medicare Open Enrollment period allows all existing beneficiaries to review their plans and ensure that their current coverage is the best fit for them, or they can fine-tune their plans to meet their needs. You can completely alter your plan during this allotted time frame. The changes made during this period will be effective from January 01, 2023. Medicare is for senior citizens aged 65 and for persons with qualified disabilities.
