Senior LinkAge Line® specialists are gearing up for the busy Medicare open enrollment period which begins Oct. 15. The Medicare.gov website already has the health and drug plans available for Minnesotans in 2015. The Health Care Choices for Older Minnesotans booklet should be out by early November and the on-line version by Oct. 15. To request a copy call 800-333-2433, press “2” and leave your name and address.
Several health plans and five stand alone drug plans will not be available here next year; there are some new ones and some are changing their names. The annual notice of change from your current insurance plan should be in the mail soon.
Senior LinkAge Line® Specialists are available Monday – Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm.
