No, its not pumpkin-everything season, Halloween, Thanksgiving, or even that one that comes after. This is the Annual Open Enrollment Season — the time of year when people with Medicare benefits get to review their coverage and see if they want to make changes to their prescription (Part D) beneftis for 2020.

Open enrollment is Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. Each year, Medicare plans can make changes to their premiums, deductibles, formularies and co-payments. During open enrollment, Medicare beneficiaries are able to switch Part D and Medicare Advantage Plans should they find one that provides better coverage or saves money.
