Medicare Open Enrollment officially kicks off October 15, and for most of the more than 59 million seniors and other beneficiaries, it’s their one chance to make changes to their Medicare coverage for 2018.


Choosing a Medicare plan is one of the most important decisions a person can make not only for their well-being, but also for their wallet. There is no one-size-fits-all approach when shopping for coverage, so seniors should know about the options available to them and what different Medicare plans can offer. 


Medicare Open Enrollment will run from October 15 to December 7. Now is the time to learn more about how to select the right Medicare plan for you.


Chris Abbott, a Health Plan Chief Executive Officer at UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement, can share with your viewers and listeners tips on how people can make the best choices about their Medicare coverage. UnitedHealthcare, the largest business in American dedicated to the health and well-being needs of seniors and other beneficiaries, serves one in five Medicare beneficiaries.
