Medicare open enrollment begins Oct. 15 and ends Dec. 7. To assist individuals in Mahaska County and the surrounding area with Medicare Part D drug coverage and Medicare Advantage plans, MHP is hosting a free, two-day Open Enrollment Event on Monday, Oct. 27 and Tuesday, Oct. 28 in the Level 2 Visitors' Lounge, entrance #2.
Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) Counselors will be available to assist participants in reviewing their plans and finding the most cost effective option for each individual.
Appointments will be available from 9 am - 3 pm both days. Each appointment takes approximately one hour, but couples should plan a little longer. To schedule an appointment with a SHIIP counselor on Oct. 27 or 28, call Kim Langfitt at 641.672.3342.
If you are unable to attend this event, SHIIP Volunteer Shirley Vore of Oskaloosa has an office located on Level 3, best accessed through entrance #1 and will be available for appointments until enrollment ends on Dec. 7.
