Medicare One-on-One Counseling Sessions
FISH OF SANCAP, along with Area Agency on Aging for SWFL and SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) is offering a Medicare One-on-One Counseling Sessions on Wednesday, November 20 from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm at the Sanibel Congregational Church Heron Hall, located at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957.
The annual Medicare open enrollment period is October 15 through December 7. This event will give participants the opportunity to meet with a SHINE counselor to review coverage, learn about Medicare changes for 2020, and how to save on Part D costs. No appointment is necessary.
“The Medicare open enrollment period is a critical time for individuals who want or need to change their Medicare plans. This one-on-one counseling session gives participants the opportunity to choose or modify a plan that is specific to their needs,” states Kathy Y. Monroe, Program Director for FISH. “We are delighted to bring this offering to our community and encourage everyone who is enrolled in Medicare to attend.”
Participants should bring a list of prescription medications, including dosage, and their Medicare card. SHINE counselors provide free, unbiased and confidential counseling to Medicare beneficiaries, their caregivers and those soon to be eligible for Medicare.
