Medicare Annual Enrollment
We encourage patients to take time every year to review their existing plan and any changes the plan has announced for the coming year. Because premiums, benefits, and medications on the plan's drug list can change from year to year - as well as your own health and life style - it's very important to evaluate your current coverage as well as check for other available plan options and make any necesary adjustments. You only have have until December 7, 2020 to make changes to your Medicare plans.
Are you fluent in Medicare?
Most people aren't. It's like learning a new language!
As part of our commitment to providing you quality, affordable care, Village Health Partners works with licensed insurance agents to provide you with complimentary educational materials, group seminars and one-on-one meetings to help you understand the ABC's (and D) of Medicare.
We encourage you to work with the agents at getMcare LLC to learn about your different plan options and the benefits of Medicare Advantage or traditional Medicare. Schedule your complimentary personalized meeting below. You can review your medications, health information, lifestyle and budget and the agents can help you find the plan that best meets your individual needs.

Medicare Enrollment Periods
When You Turn 65
When you are ready to enroll in a Medicare plan for the first time, you may have several questions! We host group classes to help educate patients on the difference between each plan. You can enroll in a Medicare plan three months prior to the month of your 65th birthday, during your birth month, and three months after. This is what we call the initial enrollment period, and it gives you the option to enroll in any Medicare plan.
The annual enrollment period for all Medicare options runs from October 15 – December 7. During this time, you can enroll in any Medicare option for the next calendar year.
Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment
From January 1 – March 31, you can change from one Medicare Advantage plan to another.
