Gig Harbor, Washington (PressExposure) November 13, 2011 -- A countdown widget has been created to help people keep track of the new Annual Enrollment Period for Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug coverage, also known as Medicare Part C and Medicare Part D respectively. The new enrollment period began on Oct. 15 and ends on Dec. 7, a significant revision from the old period, which began on Nov. 15 and ended Dec. 31.
The widget counts down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until the end of the new enrollment period for these plans. For seniors affected by the revision in the enrollment period, the widget was created as a way to spread awareness about the new dates.
As more and more people enroll in Medicare yearly, the number and types of plans also change to accommodate the overall need. It is important to stay up-to-date on the enrollment period for individual Medicare options, especially popular options such as Medicare parts C and D.
The countdown widget was created for you to download and embed on a webpage that seniors and their families might use with consistency, such as a blog or social media page. Any webpage that uses Flash or Java Script, however, can accommodate the widget, and it may prove valuable as a tool that keeps people aware of the upcoming end date for the new enrollment period.
You may download the widget from one of the following two websites:
