Medicare Open Enrollment Starts Oct. 15

Once details for the current plan are established, beneficiaries can visit the Medicare program's online plan finder.

Open enrollment is October 15 through Dec 7.

Compared to Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans often include lower copays, lower or no deductibles, and zero or low monthly plan premiums - although you must continue to pay your Part B premiums. Are the services you need covered? Medicare Benefits Analyzer™ presents more than 100 benefit attributes.

New West Health Services, a health insurance company with offices in Helena, Kalispell and Billings, has announced that it will no longer offer Medicare Advantage plans in 2017.

Unlike the Medicare Advantage plans, Medigap policies do not change yearly. The company's service area for Medicare Advantage plans includes Missoula, Ravalli, Lake, Sanders and Flathead counties, as well as many other counties in the western and southern portions of the state.

Nationwide, United Healthcare and Humana remain the biggest providers of Medicare Advantage plans. But BlueCross has quickly become the fastest growing provider of the Medicare managed plans after introducing a no extra premium plan in 2013.

Does the plan's network of hospitals and doctors meet your needs? MFA maintains this online subscription product to make it easier for health plans and prescription drug plans to analyze their positions and target opportunities in the highly competitive Medicare marketplace. In addition to the latest plan premiums, co-pays and benefits information, subscribers also have access to the latest membership data as well as Medicare Star Quality Ratings.

The national growth in Medicare Advantage enrollment reflects the large number of seniors aging in to Medicare as well as beneficiaries switching from traditional Medicare to Medicare Advantage to help limit their overall expenses and to pick up coverage for prescription drugs, wellness programs and other services not covered by traditional Medicare, Kaiser said.

Changes made during the AEP will be effective January 1, 2017.
