Medicare Open Enrollment Counseling

Published: October 24, 2018

Brecksville soon-to-be-retirees and those on Medicare now who need help choosing or changing Medicare plans.

Attention must be paid to Medicare at least annually and the Brecksville Department of Human Services wants to help.
Therefore we are pleased to welcome back Alicia Nighland, Community Liaison from OSHIIP, the Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program.
Alicia carries with her a wealth of information, not just about Original Medicare, Parts A and B, Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage and Medicare Advantage plans, but also supplemental plans and even retirement plans for soon to be retiring public employees and public employee retirees as well.
Alicia and colleagues will be at the Human Services Center on Wednesday October 24 for individual counseling.  This is for Brecksville soon-to-be-retirees and those on Medicare now who need help choosing or changing Medicare plans.
Medicare Open Enrollment is October 15 to December 7. This can be confusing so take advantage of their expertise. The counselors ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE PLAN RECOMMENDATIONS and in the 45-minute session they do not have time to review the very large number of plans available so some preparation about your needs is necessary.
There are a very limited number of appointments available at 12:45 and 1:30.
Clients need to bring their Medicare card and prescriptions.
Call Brecksville Human Services at 526-2499 for more information or to make an appointment.
These appointments are not for simple questions. Direct those to OSHIIP by phone
at 1-800-686-1578 or visit their web site at insurance.ohio.gov.
Remember, OSHIIP does not sell insurance. It’s a state agency.
