A Message from Dr. Jones

Shorter days and cooler temps remind us that we’ve reached the fall season. This also means open enrollment time for many health insurances include Medicare.  Now is the time to review your benefits and make decisions about your coverage plan for next year. 

If you have any concerns about access to providers in your insurance network, coverage for your medications or even deductibles and co-pays, consider contacting your insurance carrier and discussing these features of your current insurance plan. You can use this information to help make your insurance plan choices for next year. 

Remember, paying lower deductibles and copays might result in more restrictions on benefits. 

Take care.  Dr. J”
