It's Medicare Open Enrollment NOW until December 7th.

Every year, plans change – certain doctors may no longer work in network or maybe the plan no longer pays for your medication at the price you expect. It is important to take advantage of this time to make sure you have the best coverage you need.

  • If you would like assistance with reviewing different plans, please call our certified counselors.
  • If you receive unwanted calls from anyone trying to sell Medicare plans, call the NYS Senior Medicare Patrol Helpline at 800-333-4374.  For more information on Enrollment Fraud – click HERE

Watch Out for Scams During Medicare Open Enrollment

Here are a few things to know about what agents selling Medicare plans can and can’t do:

  • Agents may schedule appointments with beneficiaries who live in long-term care facilities and other congregate housing only upon request by the beneficiary.
  • Agents cannot conduct sales activities at an education event, including distributing flyers or marketing materials or enrollment forms.

If you would like to talk to someone about being approached by an insurance agent and feel it wasn’t done in the right way, contact the NYS Senior Medicare Patrol at 800-333-4374.
