Medicare Open Enrollment Starts Tomorrow
The Louisiana Department of Insurance urges consumers to recognize the beginning of Medicare Open Enrollment by reviewing their coverage or selecting new coverage. If you are over 65 or otherwise eligible for Medicare, now is the time to review your coverage and benefits and make decisions about your plan for the coming year. Medicare Open Enrollment begins October 15, 2019 and ends December 7, 2019 for enrollment in 2020 plans.
The Louisiana Senior Health Insurance Information Program staff and volunteers can help Medicare beneficiaries find out if they are getting the best coverage for their needs and if they are eligible for any extra help with premiums,” said Commissioner Donelon. “We have a dedicated staff and volunteer force that can help you in person or over the phone to find the right coverage for you.”
Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) staff is available to help Louisiana residents over the phone, at the Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI) and at events throughout the state. SHIIP also has partner organizations all over Louisiana that can help seniors to navigate Medicare. The Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI) has created a step-by-step guide and video series to help Medicare beneficiaries better understand their Medicare coverage options and benefits.
