Thinking Of Switching Medicare Health Plans? 4 Things to Consider

By: Inter Valley Health Plan





Choosing your Medicare health plan is a decision that involves a lot of planning and consideration. Everyone has different needs so it’s important to find a health plan that not only meets those individual needs, but makes you feel that they have your best interest in mind.

Here are a few things to consider if switching plans has been on your mind:

1.     Think about customer service. Is the health plan easily accessible? Can you talk with someone face-to-face? You want to make sure there is always a live person you can speak with should you need them.

2.     Ask about the extras. Not all plans provide the extras such as dental, vision, fitness, and local classes, so you may want to look for those that do.

3.     Don’t forget about prescriptions. Check your medicine cabinet and take inventory of what medicines you take regularly. Cross-check these with plans you’re considering to make sure you have no lapse in medications and co-pays work with your budget.

4.     Check reputation. When deciding which plan to go with, first read reviews to give you a better picture of what you can expect. Find out how long the health plan has been in business and if they seem reputable. You want a health plan you can trust that will be available for the long haul.

Whether you decide to stay with your current plan or make a switch, make sure and read the small print and seek guidance from Medicare Specialists to help you make the best decision right for you.
