DON'T FORGET: Medicare open enrollment help Nov. 1, Tuesday, at Maple Hall
October 26, 2022
This is the time each year when Medicare beneficiaries are allowed to make changes in their Medicare Part D Prescription Drug plan or Part C Medicare Advantage plan. It is strongly advised than anyone on Medicare who takes prescription medications review their drug coverage each year during this period to ensure that you are getting the best coverage for your medications at the lowest cost. The plans change every year. You can’t assume that the plan that worked well for you this year will still be your best option for 2023.
Volunteer advisors from the Statewide Health Insurance Benefit Advisors Program are available to help you with your choices, using the Medicare Plan Finder tool to analyze your drug coverage under all available Part C or D plans. They can help you enroll in a new plan during your appointment. SHIBA appointments will be available in-person in La Conner at Maple Hall on November 1st. SHIBA will also offer Zoom video or telephone appointments throughout the open enrollment period, and in-person events in other locations.
All SHIBA open enrollment appointments can be scheduled by:
· Using our online appointment request form, at: https://www.edmondswaterfrontcenter.org/ewc-programs/shiba/ ·
· Sending an email request to [email protected]
· Leaving a voice mail message at 425-290-1276
SHIBA is a free program of the Washington state Office of the Insurance Commissioner. Our highly trained advisors can provide unbiased advice about Medicare options. SHIBA advisors do not sell anything and do not receive commissions for helping you sign up for a plan.
