Medicaid Deadline Fast Approaching

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 4:29pm

Just when you thought election season was over, think again.

More than 50 Million people, including 104,000 seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries in the El Paso area, have another chance to vote this fall.

This time, they'll be electing their Medicare coverage for 2013.

By December 7, you'll need to know:

1) If your Doctor is in the networks covered.

2) If the prescription drugs you are taking are covered.

3) Should the deadline pass with no decision made, you will be assessed a penalty of 1% per month of the national average.

Sergio Archuleta of United Healthcare Medicaid joined Amber Downing on Local 4 News at 5:30 to explain more.
