Looking to learn more about your Medicare options?

The Area Agency on Aging of West Alabama’s State Health Insurance and Assistance Program is offering free Medicare consulting to ensure residents’ medical coverage is up to date beginning Oct. 15.

SHIP ensures people find the best Medicare plan for them, and SHIP Coordinator Kayla Clark said it’s important that Medicare recipients re-evaluate their plans on a regular basis.

“Plans can change premiums, deductibles, co-payments on drugs,” she said. “Last year during open enrolment, we saw 1,700 people in person and helped those 1,700 save $1.9 million.”
