2014 MEDICARE OPEN ENROLLMENT EVENT SCHEDULE
CRANSTON ---Sandra M. Powell, Director of the Rhode Island Department of Human Services, has announced that the Division of Elderly Affairs will join its community partners to sponsor more than 100 Medicare Open enrollment events across the state between October 15 and December 7. There are more than 189,000 Medicare beneficiaries in Rhode Island.
“Medicare open enrollment offers beneficiaries the opportunity to review their current Medicare prescription drug (Medicare Part D) and Medicare health plans,” said Director Powell.
“We encourage seniors to evaluate their plans for cost, coverage, and convenience to assure that they have the type of insurance that fits their needs, especially if their medical conditions or medications have changed in the past year,” she observed.
Trained Senior Health Insurance Program staff and volunteers will be available at all open enrollment events to offer free, unbiased, confidential, and individual counseling to help beneficiaries identify their coverage options. Appointments are required. To schedule an open
enrollment counseling session, call the local event site.
The full open enrollment event schedule is available by calling the Division of Elderly Affairs at 401-462-3000, or at www.dea.ri.gov. TTY users can call 401-462-0740. The schedule is also available by calling THE POINT, Rhode Island’s Aging and Disability Resource Center at 401-462-4444.
