The Medicare Annual Open Enrollment Period for Part D drug plans and Part C Medicare Advantage plans begins October 15 and will end December 7.
PASSAGES Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program (HICAP) is providing several workshops entitled What’s New with Medicare in 2022 to help Medicare beneficiaries make the best choice possible for their health care needs in the coming year.
Some of the changes that will be covered include information about Medicare Advantage plans being offered, along with various changes in Medicare’s Part D prescription drug plan offerings. Marketing by insurance companies and agents targeting seniors in the North State is significant, so seniors have to be very cautious about making an uninformed decision on their future healthcare coverage.
Due to the Public Health Emergency (PHE) workshops will be conducted online via ZOOM. There will be no in-person presentations at this time. The events are from 10 AM to Noon, and dates are as follows:
• Tuesday, October 26 and November 23
• Wednesday, October 13, November 10, and December 1
Registration is required by calling signing up here.
An email address and computer or other smart devices are required to participate.
If you can not attend one of the above dates, Passages HICAP is offering telephone appointments to help individuals with their Part D or other Medicare questions. For more information call 530-898-6716. *There will not be in-person counseling appointments due to the PHE this year*
