What is National Medicare Education Week?

Several years ago, UnitedHealthcare created National Medicare Education Week (NMEW), which is celebrated annually from September 15-21. The week was invented to help Medicare beneficiaries understand the basics of Medicare and Medicare insurance options. It always begins exactly one month before the start of the Medicare Open Enrollment Period (October 15- December 7), when beneficiaries can make changes to their coverage.
