You’ll want to keep your changing medical needs in mind as well. As 2018 draws closer, you can update your preferred plan to one that closely reflects your current medical situation. Don’t just look at what medical and coverage needs you have right now. You should also consider your future, and your doctor can help you plan for the medical needs you will have in the coming years. If possible, you should choose one of the Medicare Supplement plans for 2018 that will cover not only your current needs but your future ones as well, so you can stick with the same plan and save money over time.
