BATH, N.Y. (WETM) – The Steuben County Office For the Aging is reminding county residents the Medicare Open Enrollment period for 2020 plans is set for Oct. 15 – Dec. 7, 2019.
The open enrollment period allows those receiving benefits to review changes and options and make changes as needed. Those changes must be made during the enrollment period to take effect next year.
Steuben’s OFA urges those eligible for benefits in 2020 to carefully review changes to their plans, including the premium, annual prescription deductible, co-pays, co-insurance, drug tier levels, restrictions and drug formularies.
“Please know that Open Enrollment is a high demand time for us and we serve the public as quickly as we can,” Steuben OFA Director Patty Baroody said. “Alternatively, you can call Medicare at call (800) 633- 4227 or go to https://www.medicare.gov/plancompare/#/?lang=en.”
