Things change from year to year, and even though you don’t have to renew your supplement insurance annually, it’s best to review your plan to make sure it’s still the best plan for you. Medicare Supplement plan prices can and do change – as do situations in our own lives. Taking a look at your current situation as well as what each plan has to offer on a yearly basis is a good idea. It will keep you with the best coverage possible.
