Medicare Media Release

September 29, 2020

Medicare Open Enrollment begins October 15! This year, Medicare plans have historically low premiums — dropping an average of 34% over the last 3 years, and in some states up to 60%! Starting October 1, you’ll be able to take a sneak peek at plans available in your area.

If you’re among the 1 in 3 people with Medicare who has diabetes, here’s some more good news: many participating drug plans will offer a 30-day supply of insulin for $35 or less starting January 2021.

Think you’ll need help comparing plans once Open Enrollment begins? Here are some things you can do from the safety of your home:

  • Find Plans at, where you can see estimates for all your prescriptions.
  • Look at the eHandbook (also available in accessible formats like Braille, large print, and data/audio files).
  • Call us at 1-800-MEDICARE during Open Enrollment.
