Medicare open enrollment currently runs through Dec. 7.
Now is the time to re-evaluate your existing coverage, particularly if your financial circumstances have changed or if you have been prescribed new medications in the past year.
By getting organized and thinking through your decisions now, you stand to save the most money, experts say.
It's Medicare open enrollment time, which means you have time to make changes to your coverage for 2019.
But don't delay. If you start looking into what is available now, you position yourself to make the best choices.
"It's that time of year to be evaluating your plan to make sure it fits your needs as best as possible," said Katy Votava, president of Goodcare.com, an independent consulting firm that specializes in health care.
