Making the Most of Medicare Open Enrollment

Once a year, Medicare beneficiaries have an opportunity to review their Medicare choices, see what new benefit options Medicare has to offer, and make changes to their coverage during the annual Medicare Open Enrollment, October 15 through December 7. Coverage selected during this time becomes effective as of January 1, 2022.


The Atlantic County Office on Aging and State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) staff provide free Medicare Open Enrollment counseling and assistance for those who feel overwhelmed by health and prescription insurance plan choices or need help in making informed decisions about which plan is best suited to their needs and which programs could help save them money.


SHIP counselors can be reached at 1-888-426-9243 or (609) 645-5965, Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.


Additionally, a free Medicare Open Enrollment webinar is being offered on Tuesday, November 16 and 23 at 11 AM. Visit www.aclink.org/intergenerational-services to learn more.


 The Atlantic County Office on Aging is also available to provide information about home-delivered meals, caregiver support groups, adult day care, transportation, PAAD, Senior Gold and other programs. Call 1-888-426-9243.
