It’s Almost Medicare Open Enrollment Time

Medicare Open Enrollment is right around the corner beginning Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. Those individuals who currently have Original Medicare, a Medicare advantage plan, Medicare Part D or a Medigap plan may want to consider contacting the Office for Aging to make a health insurance counseling appointment.

Our Office for Aging HIICAP Counselors are certified by the state of New York to provide health insurance counseling and much more. Our counselors give you an unbiased review of all the insurance plans that will be available for 2019. In addition, our HIICAP program offers assistance in enrolling individuals into EPIC (NY state’s pharmaceutical assistance program) and special programs like the Medicare Savings program which can help lower costs for medications and also provide you with reimbursement on your Medicare Part B premium.

We will provide one-on-one counseling sessions showing you what options you have based on your individual health needs. We look at your medications, your doctors, whether you travel in and out of the state, and what you specifically need for your own insurance coverage.

To make an appointment with a certified HIICAP Counselor, contact the Office for Aging’s NY Connects helpline at 753-4582
