SHINE: Medicare Open Enrollment

It’s that time of year again! If you are enrolled in a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO/ PPO), you should have been mailed an information packet from your plan by the end of September. It is important to understand and save this information because it explains the changes in your plan for 2020. Premiums, deductibles, co‐pays, and the drugs covered by your plan can change significantly! During the annual Medicare Open Enrollment, you will have a chance to CHANGE your plan for next year. SHINE Counselors can help you understand your plan changes, as well as other options you may have. Call soon to schedule your SHINE appointment via phone or Zoom during Open Enrollment, from October 15 through December 7th.

REMINDER: Have your Medicare card and drug list handy for your appointment! Trained SHINE volunteers offer free, confidential counseling on all aspects of Medicare and related health insurance programs. To schedule a SHINE appointment, 617‐730‐2770.
