Assistance is available during the Medicare Annual Open Enrollment Period

The York County Area Agency on Aging’s APPRISE Program will offer free personalized counseling during Medicare’s Annual Open Enrollment Period, which begins October 15 and ends December 7.

The annual enrollment period is when Medicare beneficiaries can review their coverage and determine if health and prescription plans continue to meet their needs. Medicare Advantage Plans and Part D Prescription Drug Plans can change yearly. Premiums, deductibles, cost sharing, and formulary updates are just a few of the things that can change with your plan. Open Enrollment only happens once a year, so it’s important that you take advantage of this time period and make sure you have a plan that fits your needs and budget. Even if you’re happy with your current plan, it’s always a good idea to compare your options or review your plan to see what changes will happen in 2019.

Medicare beneficiaries will be able to receive one-on-one counseling assistance offered by trained APPRISE counselors at different locations throughout York County.  APPRISE counselors are specifically trained to answer any questions about your coverage and provide you with clear, easy to understand information about your Medicare options and can assist in comparing plans for 2019.

Pre-scheduled appointments are necessary and can be made by calling the APPRISE scheduling line at (717) 771-9042 or 1-800-632-9073.
