Missourians Can Review Plan Options During Medicare Open Enrollment

Missourians eligible for Medicare are encouraged to review their plan options and costs during this year’s open enrollment. The open enrollment period runs October 15th through December 7th.

Participants will have the opportunity to change their Part D drug coverage or Medicare Advantage plans. The Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance is offering free assistance to those who are eligible for coverage and their caregivers through the department’s CLAIM program. CLAIM can also help Missourians on a limited income determine whether they qualify for a Low-Income Subsidy or Medicare Savings Program to offset the cost of their prescriptions.

Questions can be answered by calling 1-800-390-3330 or visiting missouriclaim.org. One-on-one counseling can also be set up with the same contact information.
