The annual Medicare update is held each year in early October, prior to Medicare Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment is October 15 to December 7 annually.  Changes take effect on January 1st.

This free train-the-trainer workshop targets persons who work with people on Medicare so they can be better informed and provide helpful advice.  People on Medicare are also welcome to attend to get an overview of changes that will take place with Medicare and Medicare plans next year.

Because Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D prescription plans change, Medicare changes, or people’s needs change, it is important for people to shop and compare during this open enrollment period which happens every Fall.  Speakers at the workshop not only give information about available plans, but also how Medicare Savings Programs can help reduce premiums or copayments.

Presentations typically include Medicare Advantage Plans, Alabama Medicaid, Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services, Social Security, Veterans Administration, and SenioRx prescription assistance.  This one day workshop is held from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
