OKLAHOMA CITY—The Oklahoma Insurance Department is hosting a series of free events to help seniors prepare for Medicare Open Enrollment. The education and counseling seminars will start on Oct. 4.
“Medicare is in place to help our citizens, but we want to make sure they are getting the right plan for their needs,” Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak said. “These events are great for people who are new to Medicare or even seniors who want to know how Medicare will work with their current coverage. Our trained counselors will be there to answer any questions.”
The Medicare Open Enrollment period runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. During this time, beneficiaries can review their current medical and prescription drug coverage, as well as explore new options available that could provide better coverage at a reduced cost.
The Oklahoma Insurance Department’s Medicare Assistance Program is hosting four educational and counseling events in Oklahoma City. They are free and open to the public. After a presentation, there will be a limited number of slots available to speak one-on-one with a trained counselor. One-on-one counseling appointments are also available on other days.
