Few Change Medicare Plans Each Year, But Three Times as Many Are Considering a Change in 2010, Allsup Survey Finds,

enrollment, you have a very important window to evaluate and make changes to your Medicare coverage,” Gada said. “It’s particularly important to do so when your health condition changes to make sure you have the best plan to support your new needs.”

Making Decisions with Limited Guidance

The Allsup Medicare Advisor Seniors Survey found most seniors have limited support in choosing Medicare coverage or enrolling in a Medicare plan.

Two-thirds of respondents (67 percent) reported they select their Medicare plan with no help. Twenty-five percent say they look for support from a spouse, adult child or other family member and 8 percent from others, including their doctor, a Medicare office, friends or a financial advisor.

More than three in four seniors (76 percent) receive no support when it came to enrolling in Medicare, while 13 percent receive support from a family member and 11 percent from others, including social services and financial advisors.

“Before retiring, most seniors looked to their employers’ benefits administrators for help in selecting healthcare coverage. Now, their health may be changing and good healthcare coverage is even more critical,” said Gada. “However, they no longer have the support of their employer. Too many rely on their own limited knowledge, rather than seeking experienced, objective support to make sure they receive the quality of coverage they need.”

About the Survey

The Allsup Medicare Advisor Seniors Survey was a telephone survey of 200 individuals over 65 years of age who had Medicare coverage. The survey was conducted between Sept. 18 and Oct. 2, 2009, by Ducker Worldwide LLC, an independent market research firm based in Troy, Mich.
