Open Enrollment for Medicare is held every year from October 15 to December 7. This Open Enrollment Period is the only time beneficiaries can change or join a Medicare Part D Prescriptions plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan. These are big choices and it’s often helpful to talk to someone who can walk you through plan choices and discuss options.
During the Open Enrollment Period, the Area Agency on Aging 1-B holds Medicare Prescription Drug Assistance Days throughout our six-county region of southeast Michigan. Events are held at senior centers, libraries, houses of worship and other community venues. These events let you meet with a MMAP counselor who can review your current plan, help you compare options and help you enroll in a plan. Information on Assistance Day Events will be posted in September.
If you have questions about your Medicare Part D Prescription Plan choices or Medicare Advantage Plan choices, please call 800-803-7174 to speak with a trained counselor.
