Help Available For Choices In Medicare Part D


Before we all know it, Open Enrollment season for Medicare will be here. Starting November 15, 2010 through December 31, 2010, beneficiaries will have the option to change their Medicare Part D coverage for 2011, if they choose.

The Apprise Program at Potter County Human Services Area Agency on Aging is here to assist Medicare beneficiaries with information about the most suitable plan for their individual Medicare needs. The Apprise Program assists beneficiaries with questions regarding Medicare and can also assist with enrollment into Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage Plans. The Apprise Program does not sell Insurance products.

Recently, Social Security, CMS-Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and PACE began sending letters to some Medicare beneficiaries. These letters will inform beneficiaries of their options and possible changes to services. Please keep these letters and feel free to contact the Apprise Program with any questions about any letter you may receive.

Beginning in October, Apprise staff will be visiting local Senior Centers and community events. Apprise staff will share information about upcoming Medicare changes and updates.

During the Open Enrollment Period (Nov. 15th – Dec. 31st), Apprise staff will also be scheduled and available at Senior Centers and other community outreach events to assist Potter County citizens with questions and Medicare enrollment needs.

Apprise staff will be available at the following locations: (appointments recommended)
