Medicare Open Enrollment Begins
November 16, 2010

Beginning November 15 all people with Medicare can review their current coverage or choose a new Medicare plan. The Affordable Care Act provides new benefits to most people with Medicare starting January 2011, including a 50 percent discount on brand name drugs for people who fall into the coverage gap; free annual wellness visits; and free mammograms, colonoscopies, and other screenings. Information to assist with choice of Medicare plans is available at www.medicare.gov. Information about the Affordable Care Act is available at www.healthcare.gov. In Pennsylvania, Behavioral Health Connection provides information to the APPRISE Program and others who assist individuals with mental health care needs to select a plan and access needed Medicare services. PCPA members may contact Betty Simmonds with questions.
