Medicare Open Enrollment is scheduled through Dec. 7.
Seniors can sign up for a Medicare Advantage health plan or Part D prescription drug plan, or switch from one plan to another. The new coverage will take effect Jan. 1.
Following are ways to shop for new plans:
• The “Medicare & You” handbook, mailed each fall to every Medicare household, lists plans, premiums, deductibles and contacts.
• Visit the Medicare Plan Finder at Medicare.gov. Click the green “Find health & drug plans” button.
• Call (800) 633-4227 for Medicare assistance.
