Missed the Medicare Open Enrollment and Not Satisfied with Your Plan?

Medicare Deadline

Missed the Medicare Open Enrollment and Not Satisfied with Your Plan?

If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO, PPO) and you are unhappy with your plan, you can return to Original Medicare.  January 1– February 14, 2012 is the Medicare Advantage Disenrollment Period.  During this time, you can join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, which will automatically disenroll you from the Medicare Advantage Plan and return you to Original Medicare.  Your new coverage begins the first day of the following month.   The Dallas Area Agency on Aging has Benefits Counselors available to help you through this process.  Call 2-1-1 for the location nearest you.
