Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan Choices

Home/Medicare & Medicaid Help/Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan Choices

Unbiased Information From the Experts

Open Enrollment for Medicare Part D Prescription plans and Medicare Advantage plans is held every year from October 15 to December 7. This Open Enrollment Period is the only time most beneficiaries can change or join a Medicare Part D Prescription plan or a Medicare Advantage plan. Choices about healthcare plans can have a big impact on both your budget and your care. There’s a lot of information and many options, so it can be helpful to talk to someone who can walk you through plan choices.


One-on-One Counseling During the Open Enrollment Period

During the Open Enrollment Period,  the Area Agency on Aging 1-B typically holds Assistance Days throughout our six-county, southeast Michigan service region. Events are held at senior centers, libraries, houses of worship and other community venues. These events let you meet with a MMAP counselor who can review your current plan, help you compare options and enroll in a plan.

Make an Appointment to Review Your Plan Choices
Reviewing your plan choices every year can be helpful. Even if you have a plan you’ve been happy with, plans change yearly and even small changes in your personal situation–like taking a new medication–can affect plan costs. We may be able to save you money. Last year, our MMAP team saved beneficiaries over $3 million.

Appointments are available from October 15- December 7:
