Virtual Medicare Made Simple Class:
Making The Most Out of Medicare Open Enrollment
About the Program
Concerned that prescription costs have increased as your health needs change? Have new prescriptions or some not covered by your current Medicare Part D plan? Medicare Open Enrollment for Part D Prescription Drug Plans and Part C Medicare Advantage Plans runs October 15 through December 7. Medicare plans can make changes every year to their costs and formulary (lists of drugs covered). Join a VICAP representative for information on Medicare Open Enrollment and how to effectively use the Medicare Planfinder and other tools to maximize savings.
We will also offer meetings with trained, certified Medicare counselors from VICAP to compare plans for cost savings – so you can make an informed decision. You must attend the virtual presentation to register for a confidential, 45-minute appointment. To schedule an appointment, call 703-228-1725 or send an email to MedicareHelp@arlingtonva.us (appointments are on a first come, first serve basis). Appointments available on October 15 at 2:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. and then again on October 16 at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11 a.m.
