It’s that time of year again!  If you are enrolled in a Medi‐ care Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO/ PPO), you should be mailed an information packet from your plan by the end of September.  It is important to understand and save this information because it explains the changes in your plan for 2018.  Premiums, deductibles, co‐pays, and the drugs covered by your plan can change significantly! During the annual Medicare Open Enrollment, 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 op‐ tions you may have.  Call now to schedule your SHINE appointment any time during the Open En‐ rollment from October 15 through December 7! Trained SHINE volunteers offer free, confidential counseling on all aspects of Medicare and re‐ lated health insurance programs.  To schedule a SHINE appointment, call your local Senior Center.   For other SHINE related matters, call 1‐800‐AGE‐INFO (1‐800‐243‐4636), then press or say 3.  Once you get the SHINE answering machine, leave your name and number.  A volunteer will call you back, as soon as possible.
