Medicare Open Enrollment begins October 15

According to Medicare, plans for 2021 have historically low premiums — dropping an average of 34% over the last 3 years. This makes it even more important to explore your options for Medicare Advantage, Medicare supplement plans and “Part D” coverage for prescriptions. Staying with your current coverage could mean that you miss these savings. Starting October 1, you'll be able to take a sneak peek at plans available in your area.

If you're among the 1 in 3 people with Medicare who has diabetes, many, but not all,  participating drug plans will offer a 30-day supply of insulin for $35 or less!

Need help comparing plans during Open Enrollment? Check out these resources:

  • Find Plans at Medicare.gov, where you can see estimates for all your prescriptions.
  • Look at the eHandbook you received in the mail.
  • Call us at 1-800-MEDICARE during Open Enrollment.

Red Cross retirees can also get help from Aon Retiree Health Solutions at1-877-458-9657. Aon also offers an online tool for comparing one’s coverage needs and purchasing coverage at www.retiree.aon.com. Aon does not broker all plans and more suitable options may be available in your area. But remember: retirees who qualify for and want to continue their Health Reimbursement Account/Premium Supplement Fund benefit must continue to purchase coverage through Aon
