Just like that, it’s almost the end of October, and that means that the Medicare Open Enrollment period is officially in full swing. As you finalize your decisions on the best Medicare health plan for you, don’t forget these important points:
1. Medicare Specialists are here to help. For such an important decision, don’t be afraid to ask for help and an extra pair of eyes to ensure you understand the small print and making the right healthcare decisions best for you.
2. Importance of customer service. Of course all health plans have some level of customer service but you want to be sure it aligns with your needs. When in need, either for a quick question or urgent request, it’s important to know if you will reach a live person or automated phone tree. Also, health plans, like Inter Valley Health Plan offer a 24/7 nurse line to help answer health-related questions or provide assistance about treatment options. These customer service features can set plans apart from others.
3. Auxiliary services. When doing your research and plan comparisons, don’t forget about additional benefits such as hearing, vision or dental services. Double check to make sure your plan covers these extras. Many do, but some don’t include them at all. Checking for these now will help you avoid out-of-pocket costs down the line.
