It’s that time of year again for assisted living and long-term care residents to think about their Medicare benefits to assure they are the best fit for their current providers. For the Gardens of Cedar Rapids, it is important to understand how your plan works with our pharmacy (Right Dose Pharmacy) and our therapy department (Millennium Therapy). Weather you reside in long- term care and need to think about future coverage for skilled nursing care and prescription drugs or reside in assisted living or memory care and need to think about out-patient therapy services (typically covered by Part B) now is the best time to ask questions and get the plan that is best for you. For 2019 coverage, open enrollment will run through December 15, 2019. During the annual enrollment period (AEP) you can make changes to various aspects of your coverage. You can switch from your current plan to Medicare with a supplement or whatever plan best suits your needs in your healthcare setting. Please take the time to check with your therapy staff or administration to hear what plans are in network with The Gardens of Cedar Rapids.
