Medicare open enrollment ends in two weeks. You do not need to do anything if you want to keep the same coverage that you currently have, and it is still available. However, if you want to make a change for 2022 you must submit the revisions by December 7.

Visit medicare.gov for more information.

Also beware of aggressive marketing tactics from scammers during this time. Real Medicare brokers have strict rules they must follow. They will never come to your home without an appointment or ask for an immediate payment.
