The APPRISE Program provides free health insurance counseling for people with Medicare.

The Medicare Annual Open Enrollment Period begins October 15 and ends December 7.

During this time, people with Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D) and Medicare Advantage Plans

can review their coverage to determine if the plan they have will be the best one for the upcoming year.

If they are unhappy with their current plan, they may switch to another plan during this time.

Counselors within the APPRISE Program work with Medicare beneficiaries one-on-one to

explain plans and options in easy to understand terms. APPRISE and its counselors are not affiliated

with any insurance company and do not charge for their services, so they are able to offer free, unbiased information.

There will be an Open Enrollment Event at the Lackawaxen Township Building

on Friday, November 6 between the hours of 9:00 am and 12:00 pm.  

Those interested in looking at alternative plans can receive one-on- one counseling, information and assistance.  

Sessions are by appointment only.
