The seven-week enrollment period for next year’s Medicare prescription drug and managed-care plans began Oct. 15 but seniors shouldn’t simply renew their policies and assume the current coverage will stay the same, USA Today reports. There’s a likely payoff for those who pay close attention to the details. Among the top 10 most popular drug policies, monthly premiums for 2014 are changing dramatically. While individuals who are eligible for Medicare may elect to enroll in a health marketplace plan instead, most likely will find that a Medicare option best fits their needs.
