PA MEDI (Pennsylvania Medicare Education and Decision Insight), formerly called APPRISE, will offer free, personalized counseling during Medicare’s annual open enrollment period, which began Oct. 15 and ends Dec. 7.
Trained PA MEDI counselors will offer this service through the York County Area Agency on Aging.
Medicare beneficiaries have the option to compare and switch their Medicare Advantage plan or Part D prescription drug plan with upcoming plans for 2022.
Premiums, deductibles, cost sharing, and drug formularies are just a few aspects of a Medicare plan that can change yearly. All beneficiaries are encouraged to ensure their plan fits their needs and budget.
Even those satisfied with their current plan should compare options and review their plan to see what changes will happen in 2022.
To protect clients and counselors from the community spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), plan comparisons will be conducted remotely. In-person plan reviews may be available upon request.
Appointments are necessary and can be made by calling the PA MEDI scheduling line at (717) 771-9042 or (800) 632-9073.
