Your 2019 Medicare Open Enrollment Checklist

Mark Miller

This is the time of year when seniors get some key numbers that will affect their pocketbooks in 2019: Social Security announces its cost-of-living adjustment, and Medicare releases key information about premiums and plan choices.

It's also the time of year when seniors can do something about the cost of healthcare. The annual Medicare fall enrollment began on Oct. 15 and runs through Dec. 7. During this period, you can make money-saving changes to your Medicare coverage and make sure your insurance coverage provides the best match of healthcare providers.
