Medicare Expanded Coverage
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that Medicare beneficiaries have six weeks to change or add coverage to their current Medicare health and prescription drug plans.
The Medicare annual Open Enrollment Period runs from November 15 through December 31, 2006.
"Now is the time for Medicare beneficiaries to carefully review their current plan to see how changes may affect their costs and coverage in 2007, and then compare their plan to other options available to them," said Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt.
