Congressman Steve Cohen invites you to a Medicare Open Enrollment Fair
Saturday, October 15, 2011
9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Whitehaven High School Auditorium
4851 Elvis Presley Boulevard
This year marks an important change in Medicare’s annual open enrollment, the time period during which people can choose to change plans or shift from Medicare Advantage to Traditional Medicare. Open Enrollment starts earlier – on October 15, 2011 – and lasts longer (7 full weeks) to give beneficiaries enough time to review and make changes to their coverage.
As a result, however, beneficiaries will need to make their elections for next year’s Medicare coverage by December 7, 2011 rather than the usual December 31. The new open enrollment period will better ensure that individuals have their membership cards in hand and receive uninterrupted health care coverage on January 1, 2012.
On-site assistance will be available from representatives from the Aging Commission of the Mid-South and the Tennessee Department of Human Services.
For more information please contact the Office of Congressman Steve Cohen at (901)544-4131.
