The Annual Open Enrollment period for Medicare beneficiaries began October 15th and will continue through December 7th. Prescription Drug plans and Medicare Advantage plans change every year. The change can be as simple as a change in the premium amount or be as extensive as having not as many covered medications. It is vital for every Medicare recipient to review his/her coverage and be certain that the plan you have for 2018 is the best plan for you. The Commission on Aging and Senior Center is providing free counselling services to enable beneficiaries to make the best possible decisions. A trained certified counselor will help you review your options and determine what is covered and what costs you will likely incur throughout the year. If you are a Crawford County resident and would like an appointment call the Senior Center at (989) 348-7123.
