Medicare open enrollment runs until Dec. 7

Whether you’re new to Medicare, getting ready to turn 65 or planning your retirement, you’ll soon need to make important decisions about your health coverage.

Johnson County K-State Research and Extension Office offers free Medicare open enrollment programming and assistance through the enrollment period’s Dec. 7 end date.

For Johnson County residents, Medicare enrollment assistance is a three-step process:

  2. Complete the worksheet and return it to Denise Dias, Johnson County K-State Research and Extension agent
  3. You will be mailed or emailed a comparison of the top three plans with an explanation and instructions for next steps

More information is available from Johnson County’s K-State Research Extension Office. If you’re new to Medicare or require additional assistance, you can call the SHICK hotline at 1-800-860-5260.
