Medicare Part D's Open Enrollment Season to Begin Tomorrow - October 15th

Medicare Part D's Open Enrollment Season to Begin Tomorrow - October 15th

10.14.11 | By Greg Lopes

We'd like to give you a heads up that tomorrow, October 15, kicks off the 2012 open enrollment period for Medicare Part D. This marks the time when eligible beneficiaries can sign up for Medicare prescription drug coverage - Part D - for the first time or to switch to a plan that better meets their needs. This year the open enrollment period goes through December 7.

As we've conveyed on The Catalyst many times, Part D is an enormously successful program. It provides affordable prescription drug coverage to tens of millions of Medicare beneficiaries. In fact, next year, average Part D premiums will be $30 - that's actually a slight decrease from this year's average premium.

If you or a loved one is eligible for Part D, take the time to evaluate your or their medical needs and the coverage available through Medicare Part D. For more information please visit: http://www.phrma.org/medicare-open-enrollment.
