Medicare’s annual annual election period is October 15 - December 7. During this period, anyone with Medicare can change their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage for the following year to better meet their needs.
Medicare health and drug plans can make changes each year to cost, benefits, coverage, and the plan's network of providers and pharmacies. Therefore, materials sent from the plan, like the “Evidence of Coverage” (EOC) and “Annual Notice of Change” (ANOC) should be reviewed to find out if the plan is changing. Make sure your plan will still meet your needs for the following year. Nothing needs to be done if the current plan will continue to meet your needs for next year.
