Medicare Open Enrollment

DO YOU HAVE THE BEST MEDICARE PLAN FOR YOU?

Medicare Open Enrollment, October 15 - December 7, allows people on Medicare to check their current health insurance plan against the new plans being offered for 2018. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan or a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan, this is when you can choose a different, better plan, effective January 2018.

To help you decide, MMAP (Michigan Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program) has a counselor at Loose on Thursdays and Fridays between October 15 - December 7. In addition, there will be multiple counselors available at three special Monday Open Enrollment Events: October 23, November 13, and December 4.

Call Loose to make an appointment, 810-735-9406. Bring your Medicare card and a list of your medications including the dose and how many times a day.

If you are covered by a retiree insurance plan from your former employer, you usually need to check with your retiree plan to see what options are available.
