When should I review my Medicare plan options?

You should use Medicare’s open enrollment as an opportunity to review all your Medicare choices to select a plan that works best for you. Open enrollment is available each year between October 15 and December 7.

  • Coverage: What services are covered?
  • Quality: How does the plan rate on providing quality care?
