We Can Help With Medicare Choices

Friday, October 15 is the beginning of the Medicare Annual Open Enrollment Period for 2021. This is the time of the year when, if you are enrolled in Medicare, to make changes to your Medicare coverage. This period runs from October 15, 2021 until December 7, 2021 - Pearl Harbor Day.

 

This is the time you should review the Medicare coverage you have and determine if it is working for you. By now, you have received information from your Medicare providers of the changes in coverage that will take place in 2022 (there are changes made every year).  You need to read this information to find out if there are changes that will affect you.

 

Whatever your Medicare situation is, this is the time of the year for you to review your Medicare coverage and make changes- if changes will help you save money. Area Agency on Aging of Deep East Texas is able to help with this process. We do not sell any Medicare insurance. We are not insurance agents. We take your information to help us understand your particular situation and then review what Medicare plans are available to you. Then you use that information to make an informed decision concerning your Medicare coverage. If you decide to make a change we can help you start that process.
