Do you or does someone you know have Medicare? If so, it's not too late to change your coverage for 2012 or select a Prescription Drug (Part D) plan. Next Wednesday, December 7th is the last day for open enrollment for Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage, which is a change from previous years where enrollment ran later into December. To learn more about Medicare Open Enrollment, feel free to look at resources provided by the National Council on Aging.
If you or someone you know with Medicare lives here in Missouri, you can also utilize a statewide resource for information on Medicare – CLAIM, a nonprofit statewide health insurance assistance program. CLAIM has counselors who have been working hard since October 15 when the enrollment period opened up to help you get the most out of your Medicare benefits for 2012! To learn more about CLAIM, or to speak with a local counselor, check out their website or contact them.
