This means it is time to look at your current Medicare Supplemental Health Insurance plan, if you have one, and determine if it still meets your needs. If you don't have one and are eligible, it means figuring out what you need in a plan and finding the one that works best for you. Gretchen Lopez, Program Director for the Ohio Department of Insurance's Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP), outlines how we can best navigate the Medicare open enrollment process.
