Why Use AMAC’s Medicare Advisory Service This Upcoming AEP…?

Why use AMAC’s Medicare Advisory Service? Because AMAC makes Medicare make sense! Have you attended seminars and read through that lengthy Medicare handbook only to find yourself more confused than when you started? Well, you are not alone! When it comes to understanding Medicare, there’s so much information floating around that it can get overwhelming. But don’t fret- AMAC can help you cut through the noise and get the straight-forward Medicare information you’re looking for.

How AMAC Medicare works:

AMAC’s Medicare Advisory Service connects you with a network of licensed Medicare advisors who work exclusively for AMAC, and they are dedicated to helping you with all your Medicare questions.  Our advisors have access to a multitude of plan options from several carriers in each area- giving us a competitive edge above other agencies who only offer one option. The best part is our services are always FREE of charge, and there is never an obligation to purchase insurance with us.

[The Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) is right around the corner, starting October 15th and ending December 7th. This window gives you an opportunity to evaluate your coverage for the upcoming year.]

Now that you know how we can help you, there are 4 things you should pay attention to as the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) approaches:

  1. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan (Plan C) or a stand-alone Prescription Drug Plan (Part D), you will receive an Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) in September which will explain any plan changes that will take effect the following year. Be sure to review this and any information sent by your insurer.
  2. If you are not happy with the upcoming changes, be sure to call AMAC’s Medicare Advisory Service who can help you evaluate your options. New information for plan year 2024 will be released in early October, so we suggest starting to compare plans then.
  3. Beginning October 15th, you can make unlimited plan changes until December 7th.

The last plan election made using the Annual Enrollment Period will take effect January 1st, 2022. (However, if you qualify for another enrollment period because you’ve experienced a qualified life event, you may be able to start your new coverage sooner than January 1st).

  1. DO NOT wait until AEP begins to shop for Medicare Supplement coverage (aka a Medigap Plan). These plans are not subject to the same enrollment periods as a Medicare Advantage Plan or Stand-alone Prescription Drug Plan- therefore you can shop around for a Medicare Supplement plan at ANY time. Skip the line and call us today to look at Medigap plans in your area.

 

Simply call 855-611-4856 and one of our licensed Medicare Advisors would be happy to assist you! 

During the Annual Enrollment Period, our advisors are available extended hours:

October 15th: 9 AM – 9 PM EST

October 16th-December 6th:

Mon-Fri 9AM – 9PM EST  | Saturday 10AM-5PM EST

Sunday – Closed

December 7th: 9AM – 2AM EST
