Aetna getting into the Medicare Advantage "game"

I could not find actual websites about it, but at least in Florida, Aetna is getting into Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drugs (MAPD) for 2019. While I drive a truck, I am going to use some time off to become re-certified AND being appointed with Aetna, as well as United Healthcare and Wellcare.

If you have an agent, collect all your drugs you take, and starting in October, find out if any plans are available that will save you money. If you don't have an agent, finding a Medicare MAPD/Supplement agent in your area is pretty easy. But, if your current plan won't save any money, stick with it. Centers for Medicaid/Medicare Services (CMS) laws state you are not required to change your plan unless you want to, if the insurer cancels your plan, or if you move. You could be 75, have a very inexpensive plan 10 years old, and you could keep it. I believe your doctor leaving the plan is not an excuse, but I could be wrong (and CMS changes rules/regulations every year).

Have had this via my retirement package through my former employer for at least the last two years. Have been quite pleased with it. Don't have to deal with Medicare at all -- everything just goes through Aetna.
