Annual window to shop for Medicare Advantage plans returns on Sunday

AP Health Writer

Open enrollment for Medicare opens Sunday, and seniors could have dozens of options to choose from. During the enrollment period, which ends Dec. 7, people will have the opportunity to choose between traditional Medicare and privately run Medicare Advantage plans in their area, as well as prescription drug plans. Medicare is the federal coverage program for those age 65 and over and some people with disabilities who are younger. Medicare Advantage plans provided by insurers frequently offer prescription drug coverage, as well as extra benefits like dental or vision coverage not provided by traditional Medicare.
