The 2023 Annual Election Period (AEP) for Medicare prescription drug plans or Medicare Advantage plans ends December 7th. Thankfully, the non-stop advertisements and phone calls should end by that date as well.

If you have not reviewed your Medicare coverage for 2023 you should call us now at 1-800-797-0605 to review your coverage for next year.

Additionally, the income limits for 2023 for the NJ Prescription Assistance for the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) and Senior Gold programs have been released.  These programs help pay some of the cost for prescription drugs at the pharmacy and the monthly fee for your prescription drug plan.
