Library to host Medicare Open Enrollment event

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

McIver's Grant Public Library will host an annual open enrollment for Medicare on Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 23 and 24.

The State Health Insurance Assistance Program, or SHIP, recently announced Medicare's annual Open Enrollment will take place Oct. 15-Dec 7. SHIP advisors will be at McIver's Grant Public Library from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., on Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 23 and 24.

The free event is an opportunity for seniors in Northwest Tennessee to compare and shop for the 2014 Medicare prescription drug and health plans that are right for them.

In order to participate, residents must bring a Medicare card, prescription list (including dosage and quantity) and themselves! SHIP is a federally funded program that compares all Medicare plans offered in Tennessee.

To best serve residents wishing to take advantage of the event, SHIP officials request those attending to make an appointment by calling (877) 801-0044.
