Taking the Confusion Out of Medicare Open Enrollment

Presented by  Maynard Insurance Group

Medicare Open enrollment is from October 15 to December 7. This is a seven week timeframe for Medicare beneficiaries to change their Medicare health insurance plans. This weekly program is designed to take confusion and misconceptions out of Medicare during the Annual Medicare Open Enrollment. It will provide you with a basic understanding of Medicare as the foundation or framework to discuss your health coverage options. Did you know that there are four parts to Medicare? They are Parts A, B, C, and D. The first half of this program will address Medicare A, B, and D, as well as supplemental insurance, while the second half will be devoted to Part C, Medicare Advantage Plans. More specifically, Aetna Medicare Advantage Plans. This program is for anyone on Medicare. Whether you are new to Medicare or looking for another option to meet your health plan or prescription drug coverage need, this program is for you. Join us for an informative presentation and discussion.

Dates: Mondays, October 17-December 5, 2016; 12:15pm in the Community Room.
