Many Medicare beneficiaries have been disappointed to learn that Medicare does not provide long-term care benefits. Now, some of that disappointment could be ending. Thanks to new rules from CMS, Medicare Advantage plans can now offer some long-term care benefits.
Medicare has a new open enrollment period. Starting in 2019, the Medicare Advantage open enrollment period will run between January 1 and March 31. This is a big change for both Medicare insurance agents and Medicare enrollees.
Changes could be coming to Medicare. CMS published a proposed rule that would make significant changes to Medicare Advantage. Although the proposed changes are intended to provide more flexibility, some concerns have already been raised.
