It's open enrollment season for Medicare beneficiaries.

And, as in past years, there are changes, especially with Medicare Advantage plans, that might trip you up if you're not careful. That's according to Katy Votava, president of and author of Making the Most of Medicare: A Guide for Baby Boomers.

She recently sat down with Retirement Daily's Robert Powell.

In the podcast, Votava described what Medicare Advantages beneficiaries should do during open enrollment season to avoid costly mistakes.
