Medicare Prescription Drug and Health Plans Open Enrollment Begins October 15

Revised Caregiver Open Enrollment Oct.15th

Every year, people with Medicare get to explore new choices and pick the health and drug plans that work best for them.  This year the Open Enrollment period starts earlier – on October 15 – and ends sooner – December 7.  This gives people with Medicare a full seven weeks to compare and make decisions, and ensures that they will have essential plan materials and membership cards in hand on January 1 when new coverage begins.

Dallas Area Agency on Aging benefits counselors are available to help you through this Medicare maze and guide you in choosing the best plan for you. Medicare Open Enrollment Sites are available across Dallas County.  To find the site nearest you, contact 2-1-1.
