If you have a Medicare health or prescription drug plan, you only have until the end of Open Enrollment, December 7, to make changes to your 2018 plan. Even if you are happy with your current Medicare coverage, you might find something better. If you miss the Open Enrollment deadline, most people will have to wait a full year before to make changes to their plans.

Angela Brice-Smith, spokesperson for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is available for live or recorded interviews to discuss everything your audience needs to know about the Medicare Open Enrollment period. For more information go to medicare.gov
