October 15 marks the beginning of Medicare’s Open Enrollment for 2018 coverage. Because so many Medicare beneficiaries understand the importance of reviewing their plan options during this time, we will provide nine volunteers working along with our staff of 21 Medicare Specialists in the Senior LinkAge Line® phone bank. For those individuals who prefer to meet in person to discuss their Medicare decisions, several more appointments are being added to many of our 40 community health insurance counseling sites.
People wanting to review their options can see a list of our community sites, or call the Senior LinkAge Line at 1-800-333-2433 to be connected to a Medicare-trained Specialist who can help them over the phone or direct them to a community site. Medicare’s Open Enrollment ends December 7.
