—Optima Health, a nearly 342,000-member Virginia-based health plan nationally recognized for its quality, service and innovative programs, launched its open enrollment campaign today for the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period for Medicare Advantage Plans which begins on November 15.
This year, Optima Health is offering four comprehensive plan choices, including two new $0 premium options.
“The slate of options Optima Health is making available to Medicare-eligible residents this year offers exceptional coverage and the plans have been developed based on both the medical and financial needs of retirees,” said Michael M. Dudley, president of Optima Health. “The combination of excellent benefits, beyond the benefits offered by traditional Medicare, and the opportunity to save money, is a win-win for our senior population,” Dudley said.
Optima’s Medicare Advantage Plans include options to combine Medicare health coverage and prescription drug coverage in one simple, affordable plan. They also offer benefits in addition to basic Medicare benefits, such as preventative care, vision, dental, and hearing aid discounts, wellness programs and disease management.
With so many choices available to Medicare enrollees, Optima is committed to educating seniors and ensuring that they understand their options. Optima has scheduled more than 85 free Medicare informational meetings throughout the Peninsula, Southside and Richmond. Seniors, their family members and friends, are invited to attend any of the meetings to learn more about available options, benefit changes, decision deadlines, and prescription drug programs.
