This past Wednesday, more than 1.3 million Georgians began the Open Enrollment period for Medicare.

It’s a time for seniors and people with disabilities to look through their choices for the government program’s coverage.

In a new GHN Commentary, the administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services urges Medicare beneficiaries to take their time in assessing the plans’ costs and benefits.

“This year, people with Medicare who choose to enroll in a Medicare health or prescription drug plan will have access to more high-rated, four- and five-star plans than ever before,’’ writes Marilyn Tavenner.

Here’s a link to Tavenner’s Commentary.
