Understanding 2022 Medicare Annual Open Enrollment #SLMedicareEnrollment


This post is sponsored by Sivan Social. All comments and opinions are my own.

Are you caring for an aging parent or spouse? That can be overwhelming (especially today). And, if you’re making their health care decisions, navigating Medicare can seem like yet another chore. When my husband Will became eligible for Medicare we found the process frustrating and confusing. 

We learned that we must plan carefully in consideration of the coverage we need, the timing of enrollment, and coordination with other health benefits.

Medicare Annual Enrollment is coming up from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, so it’s time to get prepared! During this time, you can enroll in Medicare for the first time, drop your plan, or switch plans. This goes for Original Medicare (Parts A and B), along with Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D (prescription drug plans).

QuoteManage is a national Medicare telesales brokerage firm that specializes in Medicare and helps seniors across the country find the best plan to fit their needs. They help eligible Medicare customers enroll in Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement, and Medicare prescription drug, vision, and dental plans to cover all of their evolving health needs. They also advise newly Medicare-eligible and newly retired Medicare recipients with their healthcare insurance options.

Many older adults don’t realize that Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) doesn’t cover everything. For example, Part B enrollees are responsible for paying 20 percent of the Medicare-approved amount for all Part B services, which can really add up. Plus, Original Medicare doesn’t have a limit for out-of-pocket costs, which means your cost-sharing responsibility will accumulate without a cap. If you just sign up for Original Medicare, you may end up paying high out-of-pocket costs throughout the year. Because of this, Medicare also contracts with private insurance companies to offer add-on or bundling options such as:

  • Medicare Supplement Insurance, also known as Medigap
  • Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage
  • Medicare Part D, also known as Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs)
