Medicare’s open enrollment ends today, December 7, 2015. That means today is the last day for seniors and people living with disabilities to shop around and change their coverage for next year.
For those already with Medicare Part D drug coverage, medication needs can change year to year and plans change from year to year. Be sure to review your options and shop around for the plan that will work best for you.
