The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) wants everyone on Medicare to know that during Medicare’s Open Enrollment Period (OEP), which is October 15 through December 7 each year, plans and third-party marketing organizations are marketing their products through television ads, social media ads, radio ads, and mailings. “To get your attention, ads may mislead you into thinking one plan is better for you than another. It’s important to understand what agents aren’t allowed to do so you’ll be prepared if someone tries to contact you this OEP,” said Nicole Liebau, Senior Medicare Patrol Resource Center director.
