News from Aging, Posted on Fri, 10/06/2017 - 4:07pm

Due to the overwhelming increase in the demand for Medicare open enrollment assistance, the Department of the Aging will be offering Medicare Workshops to help individuals make informed decisions regarding Medicare supplemental insurance.

The workshops will help individuals learn how to explore all the health insurance plans being offered in 2018. At these workshops, you will be taught step-by-step how to look at all of the available plans, their copay amounts, and their benefits at your own pace. You will also learn how to enroll in a plan if you decide to change to a new plan for 2018.

The following workshops will be held in the Olean County Building, 1 Leo Moss Drive, in the 2nd floor Administration Conference room:

  • Tuesday, October 10, 2017 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, October 11, 2017 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
  • Wednesday, October 11, 2017 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, November 7, 2017 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, November 8, 2017 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Unable to Attend?

If you are unable to attend one of the workshops, the Department of the Aging will mail you a comparison grid ("matrix") of the Medicare plans for 2018. The matrix will also contain contact information for Medicare and the other insurance plans so that they may answer your questions and assist you in enrolling into a plan for 2018.

To register for a Medicare Workshop, or to have a health insurance matrix mailed to you, please call the Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging at 716-373-8032.
