Medicare annual enrollment is going on through December 7th. CEO of UnitedHealthcare, Medicare and Retirement in Missouri, Kurt Heumann is here to tell us more.

For those enrolled in Medicare, why is annual enrollment so important? Kurt explains that this is the one time of year that you can make a decision to change your coverage for the upcoming year. If you don’t make a decision, you will often be locked in to what you have currently. There are several options available, so Kurt encourages everyone to do some research to see what is best for them.

It is also important to understand how your plan fits into your budget. If your current coverage still fits your needs, then that is great! If you do need to look at other coverage, consider the cost.

More than money, it is important to check your coverage concerning medications and doctors. There are also free wellness benefits you can look into with your coverage, and online brain games!
