Grisham Insurance in Corinth helps senior citizens get the best prices on their Medicare Part D prescription drug plans.
Now is the time for seniors to schedule a quick, free consultation with Chris Grisham to evaluate their plans.
Part D open enrollment starts in less than a week, running from Oct. 15-Dec. 7.
Grisham Insurance, 1900 E. Shiloh Road, is an independent agent and can shop numerous providers in the market to find the most affordable plans.
Grisham recommends that seniors review their Part D plans annually to make sure they do not overpay for their prescriptions. The prescription plans are based on formulas that change from year to year in terms of which drugs fall into specific tiers, Grisham said.
Grisham has been working in the senior citizen health insurance market for 10 years and has a strong understanding of how Medicare programs work.
There are many variations between companies in terms of prices, deductibles and co-pays. While one company may have lower deductibles another may have higher co-pays. Grisham helps people look at plans over an extended time to decide which one is the most affordable in the long run.
Those concerned with maximizing their household budgets, especially people on fixed incomes, want to make make sure they are not hit with a cost increase on their Part D plans in 2019.
The open enrollment period is when senior citizens can seek a more affordable plan, which will take effect Jan. 1.
Grisham Insurance is an independent agent licensed with about 20 different Medicare supplement providers and about five Part D carriers.
Medicare supplements can be changed at anytime throughout the year, but Part D plans can only be changed from Oct. 15-Dec. 7.
