October 15–December 7 is the annual Medicare Open Enrollment period (changes take effect January 1).

Some of things you can do during this period:

 

 

 

  • Move from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage Plan, or the other way around.
  • Switch from one Medicare Advantage Plan to another Medicare Advantage Plan.
  • Select, join and/or switch to a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan that meets your current needs.

Come to a Senior Benefits Information Center (SBIC) to understand your options. No appointment is necessary, but do come early during the available hours if possible.

If you want to evaluate your Part D (drug coverage) options, bring a list of your current medications (dosage and frequency).

If you can’t make it to one of the sites listed below, we can do limited counseling by phone. Leave your  telephone number and best times for a return call during business hours at 914 231 3260 or sbic@wlsmail.org.

Habla espanol?  Call us in advance to schedule the assistance of a Spanish interpreter.  Use the helpline number 914 231 3260.
