Volunteers available Nov. 13 to assist those wishing to change Medicare plans
The 2013 annual enrollment period for Medicare Prescription Drug Plans and Medicare Advantage Plans runs from October 15, 2012 to December 7, 2012.
During this time, you can enroll in a plan if you did not previously enroll or change to a new plan. Changes then become effective on January 1, 2013.
Note that this year the enrollment period starts and ends earlier. If you do not make changes by December 7, 2012, in most cases you will not be able to change plans again until 2014.

Trained volunteers will be available by appointment in Waseca on November 13, 2012. To schedule an appointment, call Robin at 1-800-333-2433, ext. 82016.
