Even if you are happy with your current Medicare coverage, you might find something better. Every year Medicare health plans change in cost, coverage, and participating providers. In fact, the projected 2019 average basic monthly premium for a Part D prescription drug plan is at the lowest rate since 2012! If you miss the Open Enrollment deadline, most people will have to wait a full year before they can make changes to their plans. For more information go to Medicare.gov
