Medicare open enrollment continues through Dec. 7

CHESTERTOWN — The Kent County Commission on Aging is reminding Medicare enrollees to review coverage for prescriptions under Medicare, known as “Part D.”

Since health needs change from year to year, it is important for Medicare recipients to review their coverage in order to save money and/or obtain better coverage.

Plans are subject to change in 2024.

Premiums may increase or decrease. Co-pays and deductibles may change.

The open enrollment season runs from now through Dec. 7.

According to a news release from the Kent County Commission on Aging, the “Medicare & You 2024” handbook has been mailed to Medicare recipients.

Enrollees can go to https://www.medicare.gov/plan-compare to compare current coverage with all of the options that are available in this area, and enroll in a new plan if a change is warranted.

Enrollees also can call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) 24 hours a day, seven days a week to find out more about coverage options. TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.

Area residents and their families are encouraged to schedule one-on-one help from the Maryland Senior Health Insurance Assistance Program coordinator at the Amy Lynn Ferris Adult Activity Center, 200 Schauber Road, Chestertown. Appointments are required; call 410-778-2564.
