SENIOR CENTER SPOTLIGHT: Senior Center To Offer SHINE Counselors During Medicare Open Enrollment

Below is an announcement from the Wilmington Elderly Services Department, which first appeared in the latest Town Topics newsletter:

WILMINGTON, MA — If you have a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO, PPO), you should have received information from your plan in September. This information explains changes in your plan for 2020.

During Medicare Open Enrollment (October 15, 2019 – December 7, 2019), you will have a chance to CHANGE your plan for next year. SHINE Counselors can help you understand your plan changes, as well as other options you may have.

Trained SHINE volunteers offer free, confidential counseling on all aspects of Medicare and Medicare-related health insurance programs. To schedule a SHINE appointment, call the center at 978-657-7595.

An informational session will be held on Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 1pm at the Buzzell Senior Center to further explain your options and ask questions directly to the Regional Shine Director.
