Open Enrollment for Medicare

Medicare’s Open Enrollment is October 15-December 7

Let AgeSmart Community Resources help you find your way through the ever-changing world of Medicare Open Enrollment. Beginning October 15 all people with Medicare may change their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage for the following year to better meet their needs. Information for next year’s Medicare plans will be available in early October.

AgeSmart’s trained Senior Health Insurance Counselors can help you make an educated decision about your coverage. Our goal is to help simplify the process and make sure you have the insurance and prescription plan to suit your needs. We will meet with you over the phone, review your current plan, and based on the information you provide, share options that may better serve your individual situation.
