Medicare benefits counselors will hold information and assistance events throughout Western Tidewater in October 2018 to assist Medicare-eligible individuals navigating Medicare and Medicare Part D.

Senior Services’ Medicare benefits counselors will hold information and assistance events throughout Western Tidewater in October 2018 to assist Medicare-eligible individuals navigating Medicare and Medicare Part D. Assistance will also be available for those who are currently enrolled and may be eligible for the Part D Low-Income Subsidy “Extra Help” benefit. Because Medicare Open Enrollment is Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, appointment reservations are strongly recommended.

These sessions are always free and open to the public. Appointments are not required unless specified but are recommended. To make an appointment with a Medicare benefits counselor, please call Sam at 757-328-4217 as noted below.
