Medicare open enrollment ends next week. Valley seniors have until Dec. 7 to select a Medicare Advantage plan. Seniors can go online to medicare.gov to compare plans and get answers to frequently asked questions. Seniors can enter the medications they're taking to help find a plan that fits, as well.
In Arizona, seniors have more than 50 Medicare Advantage plans to choose from Abrazo, Banner MediSun and Cigna to SCAN and Universal Health Care. Seniors who are happy with their current plans may continue with them, if they are being offered next year, and do not need to take any action.
