UnitedHealthcare Medicare Annual Enrollment is happening now

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- UnitedHealthcare Medicare Annual Enrollment is currently happening and it's a great opportunity for people to sign-up or change their current plan. Art Allen from UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement speaks about the importance and ease of choosing a plan.

Allen explains that open enrollment happens from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7 and it's the only time people can make changes to their coverage because health statuses, budgets and plans can change each year.

Medicare is not "one-size-fits-all" so it's important to review your healthcare so that it meets all your needs, Allen says.
