With all the advertising about Medicare’s Open Enrollment period Oct. 15- Dec. 7, if you own a Medicare Supplement plan should you care?  Maybe.

This can be a confusing time for those who have a Medicare supplement plan.  Technically, Medicare open enrollment period doesn’t have an impact on your plan and you can switch Medicare supplement plans anytime (though you will face underwriting/health questions to qualify).

But the reality is that many people do take a look at their Medicare supplement plans  during the annual open enrollment period.  Why?

Survey after survey finds that Americans fear what the costs of long term care will do to their retirement savings or the financial and emotional burden their need for long term care will place on their adult children.

That fear is well placed as yet another annual survey tells us that the cost of long term care nationwide continues to creep up to levels that most of us can’t afford without the support of an outside source of payment like long term care insurance.
