                    Medicare and Individual Health Season is Here

Making sense of Medicare, the government-run health-insurance plan for people with disabilities and those age 65 and older, isn't easy.  Reviewing your options with a health specialist is a great way to understand your benefits.  Open enrollment for Medicare beneficiaries has started!  This period runs Oct. 15 - Dec. 7, 2014.  This is the time all people enrolled in Medicare can change their Medicare health plan and prescription drug coverage for 2015.  Health plan benefits, participating providers and prescription drug plans can change from year to year so it is important to review this information every year to make sure your current plan will meet your medical needs for the upcoming year. 

Are you under 65 and currently do not have health insurance or do you want to see what other options you may have?  The Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment will begin Nov. 15, 2014 and end on Feb. 15, 2015.  During this time, you will be able to review plan options, see if you qualify for a subsidy, and enroll in a Qualified Health plan in the Marketplace.  The earliest coverage can start when enrolling in these plans is Jan. 1, 2015.  Keep in mind you would need to apply for coverage by Dec. 15, 2014 to have a Jan. 1, 2015 effective date.  Not sure where to begin?

Montgomery Insurance & Investments has a dedicated individual health specialist that can advised you of your 
options during both the Medicare and Individual Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment periods. Contact Natalie Bailey at 937-372-7669 EXT. 119 for assistance and guidance with your health plans.
