The Medicare Annual Election Period is now underway through Dec. 7. Throughout this period, your Medicare patients will be reviewing their healthcare options for the new year. They can decide to stay with AvMed, switch to another Medicare Advantage Plan or switch to traditional, fee-for-service Medicare.

Each year, AvMed strives to be the best value for your patients. 2020 is no different: Members can expect enhanced medical benefits for the upcoming year. As their Provider, you play an important role in their final decision. The better informed you are of what AvMed has to offer, the better you can educate your patients about living a WELLfluent™ life.
