Medicare open enrollment for 2022 begins Friday, Oct. 15, and tomorrow through December 7.

This is the time for you to review your current medical and prescription plans to make sure they meet your needs.

More than 4.7 million Floridians are enrolled in medicare.

If you recently joined Medicare some questions to ask yourself are, did your initial selection work well for you? Does your plan cover services related to COVID-19?

New for next year, more Medicare Advantage options are available, as are 22 stand-alone Medicare prescription drug plans. Telehealth coverage has also expanded.

While open enrollment doesn’t begin until Friday, you can already start shopping and comparing at medicare.gov.
