My Medicare Matters(TM) Advises Evaluating Your Current Medicare Part D Plan During Open Enrollment
Date:11/6/2007

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- My Medicare Matters(TM), the community- based education program that has helped millions of seniors understand Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage, is encouraging people with Medicare to evaluate their current drug plan and decide whether to change plans during the Annual Open Enrollment Period.

The program has enhanced its award-winning Web site to help beneficiaries, their family members and caregivers more readily find the information they need to assess their Medicare Part D plan.

"Medicare plans change every year, and so do people's needs," said Wendy Zenker, executive director of the My Medicare Matters program. "People with Medicare should re-assess their plan to make sure it's still the right one and that it will continue to meet their needs for 2008."

"The MyMedicareMatters.org web site is user-friendly, and a great tool for those who are looking for answers," added Zenker, who is also the National Council on Aging's vice president for Mobilization.

New to the Web site this year is a section called, "Review 2008 Choices," that was created especially for those who currently have a Medicare Part D plan. It focuses on why someone should consider changing plans, when it is appropriate to do so and how to pick a new plan.

The Web site continues to offer "Start with 7 Simple Steps" for those who are looking to join a plan for the first time. This section explains eligibility, how to evaluate current drug coverage, cost, and how to pick a plan. Both sections link to the Prescription Drug Plan Finder on http://www.Medicare.gov and there is a helpful, downloadable instruction page that outlines how to use the Plan Finder tool.

"Like NCOA, we want to make sure seniors and their caregivers are equipped well to make decisions about Medicare Part D coverage. We believe that the resources available on MyMedicareMatters.org will enable Medicare
