Open Enrollment begins this October 15th. Before that date, you can preview all 2021 plans available in your area.
Plan Premiums can variate and the lowest premium does not always provide the lowest total cost
As expressed by Medicare.gov, Plan premiums dropped on average of 34% over the last 3 years, and in some stats to as much as 60%. For those of you interested in getting coverage for insulin, many participating drug plans will offer 30-day supply of insulin for 35 dollars or less in 2021.
You can review all plan options, but enrollment starts October 15th
Keep in mind, that after reviewing all the plan options, you can enroll by October 15th, 2020 for the plan to be effective for 1/1/2021. When checking and comparing different plans, look at the estimated “Yearly Drug & Premium Cost.” A plan with the lowest premium may not always provide the lowest total cost to you.
