Although we are still closed for inhouse business, Lifelong is restarting some of its programs virtually. One of these is the Health Insurance Information Counseling and Assistance Program (HIICAP), a vital service offering support and information to those new to, confused about, or changing their medical insurance coverage.
Fall open enrollment for Medicare this year will be from October 15 – December 7.
Open enrollment is an excellent time to take a look at your current coverage to be sure that you’re getting the best coverage at the best cost, and to explore any new Part D or Medicare Advantage plan offerings. Any changes you make during fall open enrollment will take effect January 1, 2021.
While we won’t have walk-in clinics this year, the “HIICAP Hotline” will be open September 1, through early December for you to set up an appointment for Medicare-related counseling. We have limited in-person appointments, and appointments via phone or zoom. Be your own advocate and call: 607-279-6617 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make your appointment today. HIICAP services are provided free of charge.
