The start of a New Year can bring many changes, including some to your Medicare coverage.
If you changed health or drug plans for 2020, your new coverage begins January 1. Costs may have changed too so check out your basic costs for Medicare-covered tests, items, and services. For more personalized and cost specifi c information, visit your Medicare account or create one.
Don’t forget Medicare also covers preventive services, like your yearly wellness visit and screenings for breast cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other services. Most of these services are provided at no cost to you. Preventive services are key to maintaining your wellbeing, as they keep you from getting sick and help fi nd health problems early. Check out our complete list of Medicare-covered preventive services and watch our preventive benefi ts video.
Start your New Year by learning about your new Medicare coverage and costs, and staying healthy by using preventive services. It’s important to understand how your coverage works and feel confi dent with your plan choices. And remember, our call center representatives can help throughout the year if you think you made the wrong plan choice because of inaccurate or misleading information. Just give them a call at 1-800 MEDICARE and explain your situation— they’ll find the best way to help.
Here’s to a happy and healthy 2020!
