SALT LAKE CITY (Good Things Utah) — The Medicare Annual Enrollment Period is a once-a-year opportunity for millions of Americans to examine their current coverage options and make changes if needed. It takes place every year from October 15th to December 7th.

In selecting a plan, you should think about choice, care, and experience. If finding a health plan that goes that extra mile for you and your needs is important to you, then Optum may be an option to consider.

The three important things to keep in mind when considering your coverage options are choice, care, and experience.

CHOICE means just that: You have choices, you have options, and it’s often a good idea to explore what’s out there. CARE means making sure your medical needs can be filled by your chosen care plan. Finally, EXPERIENCE, which is what’s important to you, and what makes the most sense based on your situation.
