An Open Enrollment Guide



Open enrollment is here for Medicare Advantage—and here’s what you need to do to keep yourself safe:


  1. Don’t purchase a plan from someone who contacts you—either by mail, phone, or message.
  2. Use the Medicare plan finder tool to compare plans but be careful. There are many look-alike web pages which are actually sales tools in disguise. The real Medicare plan finder too ends in .gov.
  3. Once you find a plan, purchase it with the help of a reputable insurance agent. One who’s been in the same place for at least ten years, has experience in Medicare Advantage, and has staff dedicated to troubleshooting your coverage.  If possible, use the same one over and over. Make them your “insurance home.”


Three simple rules, one goal.


Getting the best care.
