Medicare 2020 Enrollment Now Underway

October 25, 2019

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Medicare Open Enrollment for 2020 is now under way.

Through December 7 you can evaluate your options for Medicare and determine what coverage will meet your needs in the upcoming year. Please note that if you are currently on Medicare and prefer to stay with your existing coverage, you don't have to do anything.

If you haven’t already, create an account, or sign in to your existing Medicare.gov account here. You can also find useful information on the AARP website.

After signing in to Medicare.gov, consider the benefits that matter to you most and compare the available plans. If you’re already enrolled, you should still review the plans for 2020 as there may be changes to your existing coverage. You may also have different health care needs or other factors that require a change in coverage.

To speak with someone in your area about the Medicare program that’s best for you, call CHOICES at 800-994-9422, or click here for a list of area agencies that provide assistance and answers to your questions and concerns.

Once you’ve decided on a plan, your Medicare coverage will start January 1, 2020.

Don’t delay. The deadline to sign up is December 7.
