Make Informed Healthcare Decisions Post-Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period
Even if Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) has concluded, you still have the option to take steps regarding your healthcare decisions. Independent Healthcare Broker Kevin Dorr from Mapping Medicare stresses the significance of being proactive with your health.
According to Dorr, three critical areas to consider are: physical health review, prescription health review, and communication health review. He suggests if you have MAPD or Medigap coverage, request an annual routine physical examination from your physician instead of a Medicare wellness exam, as these usually have no copay cost.
Dorr also emphasizes that prescription drug costs can vary depending on where you purchase them. Consult with your healthcare broker to compare medication prices across different local pharmacies. Furthermore, he advises everyone with a health insurance plan, Medicare-covered or not, to have an updated Medical Power of Attorney.
