Medicare’s Fall Open Enrollment is from Nov. 15 to Dec. 31.
During this enrollment period, those eligible for Medicare can select health and drug coverage for 2008. People already enrolled in Medicare can make adjustments to their existing coverage during this time.
Medicare is a health insurance program for people who are 65 or older, those with disabilities or people with end-stage renal disease. Most people in those categories have hospital coverage through Medicare at no cost. However, beneficiaries can add prescription drug coverage and/or a Medicare Advantage Plan, which works like an HMO or PPO.
