Rep. Kathy Hochul released the following statement last week on the start of Medicare open enrolment:
"Today marks the beginning of Medicare open enrollment and it is critical that seniors in Western New York and across the country examine their benefits and explore the resources available to them. Keeping our seniors informed of announcements and the different options available in Medicare will help ensure beneficiaries have the best individual plan to meet their health and financial needs."
Open enrollment period for Medicare will end on Dec. 7. Seniors can speak to a Medicare specialist available 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 1-800-Medicare. For further information on Medicare open enrollment visit, www.Medicare.gov.
