Review Prior Year Receipts

Gather your medical receipts and bills from the past year. Review them carefully. Determine if your current coverage was enough to keep your costs for medical care, services, and supplies within your budget. If you find that your out-of-pocket expenses were too high, you may want to consider other options during AEP. Have your healthcare needs changed over the past year? If you were recently diagnosed with a chronic illness or require new long-term medications, you will want to make sure that your current Medicare coverage will continue to meet your evolving needs.

Gather Your Doctors & Specialists

Make a list of your doctors and specialists. If these medical providers are important to you, you can check a plan’s network before enrolling to make sure you can continue to visit the doctors and specialists you are comfortable with.

Create Prescription List

Create a comprehensive list of your current prescription medications, including names and dosages. If you are looking for a Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) or Medicare Advantage Plan with prescription drug coverage (MA-PD), compare plan formularies (lists of covered drugs) and pricing to make sure the medications you need will be covered. Plans can vary in cost and benefits.
