Open Enrollment is fast approaching! If you have a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO or PPO), you should receive a notice from your plan by the end of September. That notice outlines changes to be made to your plan for 2018: it is important to review, understand and save this information. During Medicare Open Enrollment, from October 15th to December 7th, you will be able to change your plan for next year.
If you would like help understanding your upcoming changes and options, a trained SHINE counselor is available to offer FREE and CONFIDENTIAL counseling on all Medicare and related health insurance programs. You can reach the SHINE program by calling 508-222-1399. Once you get the SHINE answering machine, leave your name and number. A volunteer will call you back, as soon as possible. If you have questions or need an appointment during Open Enrollment you should call NOW.
