Get ready for Medicare Open Enrollment

Medicare Annual Open Enrollment for 2021 begins on Thursday, October 15, and ends December 7. Are you prepared?

If you’re Medicare-eligible or assisting someone who is, join me on Tuesday, October 13, for a one-hour Sylvia Group webinar explaining Medicare coverage and guiding you through the Open Enrollment process.

The webinar will begin on Zoom at 5 p.m., so fix yourself a snack or meal, pour yourself a beverage, relax, and if you have any questions, submit them during the presentation for a Q&A session at the end.

Open Enrollment in Medicare may be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. In clear, concise terms, I’ll show and explain:

  • the various components of Medicare
  • what benefits those components include
  • how much Medicare recipients pay
  • how private insurance can supplement Medicare coverage
  • prescription drug coverage
  • when and how to enroll
  • post-employment enrollment after the Open Enrollment period.

If you’d like to view the presentation but the timing isn’t good for you, register anyway. We’ll send you a recording the following day.
