MetroWest SHINE – Appointments
SHINE (Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone…on Medicare) can help! Open enrollment appointments, from October 15 through December 7 at the Senior Center, will be available at the end of September. 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 be mailed an information packet from your plan by the end of September. Understanding and saving this information is important because it explains the changes in your plan for 2024. Premiums, deductibles, co‐pays, and the drugs covered by your plan can change significantly! Meet with a SHINE counselor to review any changes and ensure you’re in the right plan for you! Trained SHINE volunteers offer free, confidential, and unbiased counseling on Medicare options. To schedule a SHINE appointment, call the Senior Center at 617‐730‐2777. For other SHINE related matters, call 1‐800‐243‐4636, then press or, say, 4. Once you get the SHINE answering machine, leave your name, town, and number. A volunteer will call you back as soon as possible.
