(DURANT) The SODA Area Agency on Aging is hosting several Medicare Open Enrollment events throughout the SODA service area during November. At the events certified Medicare counselors will be available to help Medicare enrollees navigate through the plans and provide information for other Medicare programs including the Medicare Savings Plan and the Low Income Subsidy.
Medicare Open Enrollment is held every year between October 15 through December 7th to allow Medicare recipients to compare the Medicare Part D prescription drug plans that are available and make changes to them for the next year. Comparing plans can often save money as the plans change from year to year.
The SODA Area Agency on Aging is currently taking appointments for these events. Please call the Senior Information Line at 1-800-211-2116 or 580-920-1388 to schedule an appointment to talk with a Medicare counselor at one of these locations:
- November 6th at Big Five Community Services in Coalgate, Ok
- November 13th at the Kiamichi Technology Center in Hugo, Ok
- November 15th at the Pontotoc Technology Center in Ada, Ok
- November 20th at the Sulphur Senior Nutrition Site in Sulphur, OK
