Medicare’s annual election period is shorter and earlier than last year, running from October 15 – December 7, 2011.
It’s imperative that Medicare beneficiaries act quickly to research what type of coverage is the best for them.
Plans began marketing on October 1 and beneficiates may enroll in the plan of their choice starting October 15. The annual election period ends on December 7, 2011. It’s important to educate seniors of this important deadline to ensure that they make their choice in time.
