Niagara County will host a series of community meetings regarding Medicare choices for seniors in 2023, as well as other health care program options, according to Darlene DiCarlo, director of the Niagara County Office for the Aging. The annual Medicare enrollment period runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7.
“There are many choices for seniors, there can be program changes from year to year, and, quite frankly, it can get overwhelmingly very quickly; so we host these meetings to provide the latest information and really spend a lot of time answering people’s questions,” DiCarlo said.
She noted the meetings will include discussions on Medicare Part D, NYS EPIC and the “Extra Help” Low Income Subsidy Program.
The scheduled events are:
√ Oct. 20, Town of Lockport Town Hall, 6560 Dysinger Road, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
√ Oct. 25, Lewiston Senior Center, 4361 Lower River Road, 10 a.m. to noon
