There is still time to get some help navigating Medicare as the Open Enrollment period ends on December 7th.
Toni Rudolph is a volunteer, the co-leader of the SHIBA Team and is a certified SHIBA Counselor. SHIBA stands for Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance program. That program operates as part of the United Community Action Network.
Rudolph says this is the only time of year that most Medicare recipients can change their Medicare Advantage and Part D plans. She says benefits and costs change each year so it is important to do a benefits checkup during this time. Rudolph says she and other volunteers are available to meet with people that want assistance. Most meetings last for about one hour.
Rudolph says so far this year the local SHIBA Team has saved people over $73,000. . To make an appointment, call SHIBA at 492-2102.
