Medicare Open Enrollment Begins October 15
October 15 @ 8:00 am - December 7 @ 5:00 pm
Medicare’s Open Enrollment period gives people with Medicare the opportunity to make changes to their health plan or prescription drug plan, pick a Medicare Advantage plan, or return to Original Medicare (also referred to as Medicare Part A and Part B). Medicare plans can change their offerings and costs every year, and individuals’ health needs can change from year-to-year, too. Now is the time for people with Medicare to review their coverage options and make a choice that best meets their health care needs. Reminder, free help is provided by the State Health Insurance Assistance Program: Open Enrollment runs through December 7. Call or E-mail to schedule your appointment with a trained SHIP counselor: 800-243-5463, 251-706-4680, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
