News and Upcoming Events

Medicare Open Enrollment runs between October 15th, 2022 and December 7th, 2022. This is a hard deadline so it is best to take care of it early. 

It is vital to check what your Medicare plan will cover in 2023. Will it meet your health needs and budget? Will it cover the prescription drugs you need? If not, it it time to find a new plan. And be sure to check that your plan will be offered in 2023. 

Part D and Medicare Advantage plan members can switch plans between October 15th and December 7th, 2022.

Get help from PA MEDI by calling 267-880-5700. Their highly trained counselors will help you to understand your benefits and provide you with free, unbiased information regarding plans for the upcoming year.
