The Open Enrollment Period for Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage begins Monday, Oct. 15, and area plan providers are offering plan reviews.

CareLink, central Arkansas’ Area Agency on Aging, is providing free plan reviews to Medicare recipients. Appointments can be made between Oct. 15 and Dec. 7 for a free Medicare Drug Plan review.

According to a CareLink press release, it is vital to reevaluate health plans every year due to changing health plans and health needs. The open enrollment period is the time when Medicare recipients can assess different plans to choose the right insurance plan for them.

The deadline to select a Medicare insurance plan for 2019 is Dec. 7. This ensures that coverage continues without interruption on Jan. 1, 2019.

An appointment is required to conduct an insurance plan review. Most of the reviews will take place at CareLink’s office in North Little Rock. However, there are additional dates at various central Arkansas locations listed below.
