Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Connecticut 2015
Crowe and Associates wants to make sure all our clients are aware of the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Connecticut 2015. This is a great opportunity for both uninsured individuals as well as families to get much needed health coverage. Medicare Advantage plan companies are able to make plan and benefit changes to existing plans every January, during open enrollment. There will be major changes this year for many plans in Connecticut. These changes include premium increases, plan terminations, as well as the introduction of referral based plans and more.
Medicare Advantage plans are currently offered in Connecticut by United Healthcare (AARP and non AARP branded), Aetna, Connecticare, Anthem BlueCross BlueShield and also Wellcare. Most of these companies will be making major changes to existing plan holders benefits. Please note: Medicare Supplement plans such as the AARP Medicare supplements (also called Medigap) do not change benefits. They are only subject to rate increases.
The Medicare Open Enrollment Period
(OEP) is your opportunity to review your plan and make changes if necessary. The OEP period runs from October 15th to December 7th. If you apply for any changes during that period they will be in force as of January 1, 2015. OEP is the only opportunity during the year to change plans or companies. (Unless you have a special election). Crowe and Associates works with all MAPD plans offered in Connecticut for 2015. As a result, we are able to review all available plans to help you find the best option. Plan reviews can be done by phone, at our office in Brookfield, our various library seminars or even in the home.
