Medicare Annual Enrollment


Medicare plans change every year. Medicare Annual Enrollment, which runs from October 15 to December 7 each year, is a good time to explore your health plan choices. For most people, this is your only opportunity to choose or change your Medicare health plan for 2019.

Medicare Annual Enrollment Ends December 7

We’ve partnered with independent, licensed insurance agents to help you make informed decisions—and make the most of your health plan. They can help you: 

  • Learn about 2019 Medicare changes and your Medicare health plan choices for the coming year. 
  • Review your current coverage—including benefits, cost sharing, deductibles, and prescription drug coverage—and compare benefits and costs. 
  • Make changes to your existing plan or enroll in a new Medicare plan for 2019.

There is no cost to you for these services, and there’s no obligation to enroll in a plan. You don’t need to change your Medicare plan to keep your Mercy Medical Group doctors.

Join us and our partners at a Medicare event. It’s free and there’s no obligation. You can find an event and register online or call our senior services representative.* 

Our senior services representative* will also be happy to connect you with one of our partner agents and answer your Medicare questions. Please call us at 800.400.6070 (TTY 711), weekdays 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

*Senior services representative services are available to anyone eligible for Medicare.

Medicare Advantage Plans 

Get more simplicity and savings, while keeping the doctors you trust. Many people choose a Medicare Advantage plan for convenience, coverage, and cost savings. Medicare Advantage plans from Health Net, UnitedHealthcare, Blue Shield and Anthem Blue Cross give you continued access to Mercy Medical Group doctors. 

Also known as Medicare Part C, Medicare Advantage plans combine comprehensive coverage into one easy-to-use plan and usually provide more coverage than Original Medicare alone.

Some Medicare Advantage plans also include dental, vision, and hearing benefits. These all-in-one plans help simplify Medicare and may cost less than other options. 

In addition to providing more benefits than Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans deliver care in a different way. Unlike Original Medicare’s fee-for-service approach, Medicare Advantage plans work like a familiar HMO or PPO plan. Preventive services are emphasized and your primary care doctor manages your care. 

Data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) shows that this proactive, managed-care approach can be good for patients. 

Compared to fee-for-service patients, Medicare Advantage patients:** 

  • Are more likely to receive preventive care 
  • Are less likely to go to the emergency room 
  • Have fewer disease-specific complications 
  • Have shorter hospital stays and fewer readmissions

Medicare Advantage plans can also be very cost-effective. 

We partner with Medicare health plans that offer: 

  • Monthly plan premiums as low as $0 
  • Prescription drug copays as low as $0† 
  • Copays as low as $0 to see your primary care doctor 
  • Copays as low as $10 for specialist visits 
  • Gym membership included
