Senior Health Insurance Information Program
The Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) helps Medicare beneficiaries better understand their Medicare coverage options and benefits. Counselors help seniors make informed decisions by providing free and unbiased guidance via telephone or face-to-face interactive sessions.
The Medicare Open Enrollment Period is From October 15 through December 7. During this period, Medicare beneficiaries can make changes to their existing plans such as switching from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage Plan or vice versa, switching from one Medicare Advantage Plan to another, and/or making changes regarding Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans.
