In an effort to prepare seniors for the 2017 Medicare program, on October 20 and October 25 U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) will host his annual information sessions covering Medicare Open Enrollment. These informative presentations are free and open to the public. Please note that these sessions are held in different locations in order to provide constituents convenient options.
“Medicare serves millions of older Americans in our country, but most folks are unware of how Medicare actually operates because they never received a basic overview of the program,” said Johnson. “As a result, selecting the best Medicare plan in anticipation of your health care needs can be very confusing. That is why, in order to help seniors navigate their options, I want to invite folks to attend one of these two helpful information meetings.”
The sessions, hosted in conjunction with the North Central Texas Area Agency on Aging (NCTAAA), will provide a complete overview of the program and will coincide with the annual Medicare and Medicare Prescription Drug Program open enrollment period, which runs between October 15 and December 7.
After the program presentation, the NCTAAA will be on hand to take questions regarding the enrollment process. Please be aware that due to time constraints, attendees interested in one-on-one counseling will be contacted after the session in order to set up an appointment at a later date.
