The leaves are changing colors and falling from the trees, which means it’s that time of year to enroll in a health insurance plan. But don’t delay! If you miss your enrollment period, you may not be able to get into a health insurance plan until next year’s enrollment period.
Annual Enrollment Period for Medicare beneficiaries
If you’re enrolled in Medicare, Oct. 15–Dec. 7 is your opportunity to join or switch to a different Medicare Advantage health plan or Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. Any changes you make during this time period will take effect on Jan. 1. Farm Bureau has specially trained and certified Medicare Specialists ready and willing to help you find the best plan to suit your needs and your wallet.
