Michelle Singletary, a respected reporter for the Washington Post, is concerned that the news of the Obamacare Open Enrollment Period is overshadowing the Open Enrollment Period for Medicare. In her October 29th article, Singletary urges seniors to take advantage of this once a year opportunity to lower their monthly premiums and improve their healthcare coverage.

The Open Enrollment Period, the time of year when individuals with Medicare are able to make important changes to their healthcare coverage. Open Enrollment runs from October 15th to December 7th, and provides seniors with the opportunity to adjust their coverage, add dental and prescription drug coverage, and lower their monthly premiums.

Singletary writes: “With so much fuss and frustration over the open enrollment for the health-care marketplaces, some people might be missing important information about another open-enrollment season. Open enrollment for the exchanges is overlapping and overshadowing the importance of the Medicare open-enrollment period.”
