Navigating Walk Your Dog Month and the MAOEP for Client Health Success in 2024

Stepping into a new year marked by fresh resolutions and the onset of the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period, January brings us, Walk Your Dog Month—a seamless transition to engage in meaningful discussions with your clients during this enrollment period, ensuring their coverage aligns with their 2024 health goals.

The MA OEP is a specific timeframe, running from January 1st to March 31st each year, during which individuals who are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, are allowed to switch to a different Medicare Advantage plan or go back to Original Medicare.

This month not only encourages the pursuit of health goals but also provides a natural segue to explore the benefits of Medicare Advantage preventive services.

Medicare Advantage Plans and Preventative Services: Bridging the Gap

Let’s bridge the gap between the joys of dog walking and comprehensive health coverage. During the MA OEP, it’s a good idea to spotlight how Medicare Advantage plans can play a pivotal role in supporting your clients’ health goals.

Many beneficiaries are often unaware that these plans encompass a variety of preventative services, such as vaccinations, screenings, and wellness checks. Agents, the MA OEP is a golden opportunity to check in with your clients, help them reassess their health needs to ensure they have the coverage that best serves their needs.
