2015 Medicare enrollment in Worthington

WORTHINGTON — The 2015 annual enrollment period for Medicare Prescription Drug Plans and Medicare Advantage Plans runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. During this time you can enroll in a plan if you did not previously enroll or change to a new plan. Changes then become effective Jan. 1, 2015. If you do not make changes by Dec. 7, in most cases you will not be able to change plans again until 2016.
