Oct 12, 2011, 16:13 ET from Insuraprise, Inc.

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Insuraprise, Inc., the most productive Medigap Insurance agency in the United States, wishes to remind seniors that Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) has changed this year to October 15th - December 7th with the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.

During the AEP Medicare patients will be able to:

Change from a Medicare Advantage Plan back to Original Medicare.

Switch from one Medicare Advantage Plan to another Medicare Advantage Plan.

Join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.

Switch from one Medicare Prescription Drug Plan to another Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.

Drop your Medicare prescription drug coverage completely.


"If this is your first year with Medicare Supplemental Insurance, you may have been surprised when your insurance provider sent out its ANOC, or Annual Notice of Change, that informed you of any changes to your benefits or costs for 2012," said Insuraprise CEO Brandon Todd, "If you've been a patient for awhile, then you're fully aware that this letter almost always includes an increase in your monthly premiums. If your new premiums will be more than you can comfortably afford, give us a call at 888-875-4463 and one of our licensed Medicare Supplement Specialists will be happy to find you another great plan with better rates. If you're not currently enrolled in Medicare Part D, then you should be concerned. Failure to enroll in Part D can increase your premiums for life. Don't let the AEP deadline of December 7th pass you by or you could be paying an additional 1% per month for as long as you have Part D."
