Whether you’re new to Medicare or simply wondering about Medicare options available to you, the Medicare Open Enrollment period (October 15 to December 7) is the time when all beneficiaries should review their plan options for the year ahead.
In November, Minnesota seniors can schedule a free one-on-one session to help them review and select their Medicare plan coverage for 2017. On November 4, 8 and 16, from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM, staff and volunteers from Minnesota’s Senior LinkAge Line® will be at the AARP Minnesota Information Center conference room in the Mall of America to assist Medicare beneficiaries. AARP is on the second floor at the west side of the mall (228 W. Market).
Help will be provided on an individual basis, so interested persons should schedule an appointment by calling 952-858-9040. For the appointment, bring your Medicare card, a list of your medications with the dosages and the name and address of your preferred pharmacy.
The Senior LinkAge Line® is a service of the State of Minnesota and is the federally designated State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), providing free, objective information on Medicare options.
Directions to the AARP Center at the Mall of America. Park in the West parking ramp on level P2 or P3, as close as possible to the skyway entrance, which is between the two anchor stores (Macy’s and Nordstrom’s). Access the skyway by stairs or by elevator. The AARP Information Center is immediately on your left when you enter the mall.
