Enrollment for MedicarePosted by on November 04, 2011
As November opens people begin to think of the holiday season and the upcoming cold weather, but one important detail shouldn’t be overlooked for our nation’s seniors— Medicare enrollment has begun again. From October 15th to December 7th, seniors across New York State will have the opportunity to change service plans and providers. Don’t put off any necessary changes! Make sure you understand the coverage changes when looking into a new plan. As HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a recent press release, “The Affordable Care Act is helping to keep Medicare strong and affordable,” People with Medicare are seeing higher quality benefits, better health care choices, and lower costs.” The key to Secretary Sebelius’ statement is that any changes to your plan should be for the better! If you aren’t sure, you can contact Medicare at (800) 633-4227 for the most up-to-date information. Healthcare is an essential part of our lives, and I will continue to fight for comprehensive health care for ALL Americans, as my predecessors have fought for comprehensive care for our seniors- Medicare.
