Coming Soon! Medicare Annual Enrollment Period October 15 through December 7!



Medicare Annual Enrollment, Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, is the one time each year that Medicare beneficiaries have a chance to take a look at what plans are being offered for the next calendar year and make a change to a different plan if they want too.  For folks who have Medicare and a Medicare prescription drug plan or a Medicare Advantage plan, this short window time is your opportunity to find out what plans are being offered next year.

Why would someone even want to take the time to review their options for next year if what they have now is working just fine?  Well, not only do you get to make a change each year, but the plans themselves can make changes.  The plan you have now just might not be the best choice for coverage for next year.  And since most people only have this one time a year to make any changes, it is a good idea to review your options just to be sure you are going to get the best coverage for medications and medical costs for the coming year.  Why pay for something that is not going to give you the best value?

So how can you find out what plans are being offered next year?  Medicare has a tool called the Medicare Plan Finder on their website,, that allows you to enter some basic information about who you are, enter your medications with dosage and strength, choose your pharmacy, and view and compare plans that will cover your needs at the best cost to you. 

You can also contact Spectrum Generations at by calling 1-800-639-1553 and schedule an appointment to meet with an Aging and Disability Resource Counselor at one of seven local community centers across central Maine who will work with you one-on-one to help you get the information you need to make the decision that is right for you.

Don’t wait.  Your opportunity for change is short.  Give us a call today, we will be happy to help you!
