It’s That Time of Year again: Medicare AEP

By Ted Sobolewski

Accent Insurance Group


It’s that time of year again! Medicare Open Enrollment / Annual Election Period (AEP) are coming this month. If you are on Medicare and have a Medicare Advantage Plan, you will receive your ANOC Letter (Annual Notice of Changes) by October 1st.  The ANOC letter shows you the changes to your current plan that will start Jan.1, 2018. From Oct. 15th through Dec. 7th (Open Enrollment), you can select another Medicare Advantage plan should you desire. This change won’t go into effect until Jan.1, 2018.

The same is true if you are on a stand-alone Prescription Drug plan. Be sure to review how your current prescription drugs are covered on your current plan. They may have changed tiers/co-pays, or worse, may no longer cover your medication. This is one of the most important areas that should be reviewed when determining whether to keep or change to another Medicare Advantage plan with prescription drugs or a Stand Alone Prescription drug plan.

Next month, we will talk about the upcoming enrollment time for Under 65 Health insurance-- or maybe it will be called Affordable Health Care. Whatever name it is given, we will try to help you find the plan that will work for you coming this November.

As a broker agency, we will be offering plans available for 2018.  We also do Life, Dental, Cancer and Long Term Care insurance policies. If you have any questions on any of these or other insurance products, give us a call, 352-666-7373, and let us work to find insurance protection to meet your needs. Our agents are trained to do and help you work through the maze of the different options.

We are also holding our Client Appreciation/Open House, at Accent Insurance Group, 4098 Commercial Way, Spring Hill, on Sat., Oct. 7, from 10 a.m. to 1p.m.  We will have food, games, giveaways and more.  We invite you to come on by. Just call us, at 352-666-7373, to let us know if you are coming.

So much has happened to our state over the last few weeks, and still there are so many people that are still displaced and have lost their homes.  Our best wishes and prayers go out to those families still struggling in the aftermath of the hurricane.
