Medicare enrollees have an opportunity to review and accept their current plan’s upcoming changes – or opt to pick a new plan – every year during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). The five-part Medicare Deep-Dive mini-series offers the foundation needed for individuals to make informed plan choices and the virtual format means people can learn from the comfort and safety of their homes.
