Plan costs and coverage change each year, so beneficiaries are advised to make sure their plan still meets their health needs and budget. By shopping available plans and comparing costs, beneficiaries may be able to find a Medicare health or drug plan with better coverage or a lower premium. The Disabled Citizens Alliance (DCAI) has two certified CLAIM counselors available to assist beneficiaries in checking their coverage.
