Guess What Time It Is?! It's Medicare Open Enrollment from October 15, 2022 to December 7, 2022.
NOTE: This is different from Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment (this is the period where you can change your Medicare Advantage Plan or change back to original Medicare from January 1, 2023 to March 31, 2023)
It's a time where many are confused about their choices and how it will affect their healthcare. There's many questions.... Should I keep my original Medicare? Will my medications be covered? What about the "donut hole" or "gap"? Will I be able to see my doctor? Can I still see my Physical Therapist? What will my Part B premium be? Is the Medicare age changing?
What do we know? Good news, Medicare Part B premiums and deductibles are being reduced in 2023. If your current plan is still being offered, you don't have to do anything. But is is wise to look at your options.
As part of our comprehensive services here at Excel Rehabilitation Services, we have a Resource Center at our clinic. We are often out in the community and networking with other healthcare professionals. Therefore we are able to gather information and local community resources to provide to our patients and their family members, for a more comprehensive level of care.
We recently met with Representatives from Louisiana Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) and a Certified Navigator from Health Insurance Marketplace. They are not associated with any specific insurance carrier. We have their information available for you. Come by the clinic and pick up free brochures, booklets, and flyers. There's no charge for the information. Check out the clinic while you're here and meet the staff! Grab a cup of coffee while you're at it! We're located at 2251 S Burnside Ave Gonzales, La.
*NOTE* If you do choose a Medicare Advantage carrier, we can probably connect you to a local representative that can come to you.
Phone for Health Insurance Marketplace: 800.435.2432
We look forward to meeting you. See yall soon! :-) Sincerely, Your local Excel Rehab Team.
