Open enrollment for Medicare runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7.
Remember the four C's for Medicare open enrollment:
Cost: What are your projected costs going to be?
Coverage: Does the plan cover every drug you think you'll need in 2017?
Convenience: Can you get your prescriptions at a location convenient to you (or by mail)?
Customer service: How do other clients rate the plan in terms of customer responsiveness?
