Find out how you can best prepare for this fall’s Medicare Open Enrollment period.
Medicare Open Enrollment will take place from October 15 – December 7, 2021.
This is a good time to review your present plan, determine if it is working for you and if not, make some changes. The State makes some updates to Medicare on an annual basis, so new opportunities may arise this year that will allow you to save on your plan’s expenses or qualify for available public benefits. Awareness is key when it comes to having control of your Medicare plan and costs.
If you need assistance with health insurance options, you can receive free and confidential information from the SHINE representatives at The Senior Center. Currently, appointments are available both over the phone and in person at 7 Main Street, Shelburne Falls MA.
If you are new to Medicare, you should plan to enroll 3 months in advance of your 65th birthday. For SHINE appointments through The Senior Center please call 625-2502 to schedule. SHINE Counselors are also available for telephone appointments at LifePath by calling 773-5555.
