Q & A: When Can I Change My Rx and Medicare Plans?

by Tim Gleason & Dave Root on Oct 10, 2020

We printed this Q&A column in the Oct. 10, 2020 edition of The Lewiston Tribune.

When Can I Change My Rx and Medicare Plans?

A: The Medicare Annual Election Period is coming up from October 15th through December 7th. This is time to make changes to your plans. 

Review your Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) - It is really important to review right now. Seniors are often shocked to know that they can change their PDP plan and get more benefits while paying a lower premium.

PDP plans often have premium rate increases or change how they pay benefits on the particular prescription drugs you need. We review your actual prescription drug list and compare how benefits are paid by the most popular PDP plans.  Then you choose the right plan that pays the most for prescription drugs at a premium you can afford.

Other Changes to Consider Now 

• Change from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage Plan 

 • Change from a Medicare Advantage Plan back to   Original Medicare. 

 • Switch from one Medicare Advantage Plan to another   similar plan 

 • Join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan 

Any plan changes would take effect on January 1, 2021.
