Open enrollment in the Medicare Advantage Program is happening now.  The enrollment time ends on December 7th.  Medicare Advantage is an alternative way to get Medicare benefits.

Kris Gross with the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) says the changes made during this enrollment period will become effective the first of the year.

She adds those who have Medicare Advantage need to review the premium, deductibles, co-payments, additional benefits, and drug coverage to see if the plan is meeting your needs.
