Medicare open enrollment deadline approaches


Region – Don’t ignore Your Medicare mail! It’s that time of year again! If you have a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO, PPO), you should be receiving information from your plan. It is important to read this information because it explains the changes in your plan for 2016.

During the annual Medicare Open Enrollment, Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, you will have a chance to change your plan for next year.

Trained SHINE (Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone) counselors can help you understand your plan changes as well as what other options are available to you.

Call your local senior center to get a SHINE appointment during Open Enrollment or call 1-800-AGE-INFO(1-800-243-4636), then press or say 3. For more information visit
