ABSTRACT
The article reports on several changes in Medical plans in the U.S. The annual open enrollment for November and December 2006 features a new look to Medicare and sets Part D coverage apart from Parts A and B. The beneficiaries' Part D benefit will continue if he or she takes no action. However, more beneficiaries may discover both stand-alone and Medicare Advantage plan that cost less. The Medical Advantage plans are another option that could offer both health and drug benefits at a premium that is lower than separate purchases for Parts A, B, and D. The Medicare Personal Plan Finder also redesigned its layout and system. It now provides personalized searches and better integration with the Prescription Drug Plan Finder for comparisons with prescription drug plans.
