Medicare 2020 Plan Review Day

SHINE is a federally funded program– Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone


If you are enrolled in a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO/ PPO), it is time to review your options for 2020 during Medicare Annual Open Enrollment: October 15 through December 7, 2019. Even though you may have the best plan this year, SHINE encourages you to be an empowered, educated consumer. It is important to review all of your options because premiums, deductibles, co-pays, and the drugs covered by your plan can change significantly year to year.

Trained, certified SHINE volunteers offer confidential counseling on all aspects of Medicare and related health insurance programs at no cost and may help find cost savings for you.

SHINE counselors will be on site at SeniorCare, 49 Blackburn Center, Gloucester, Friday, November 8, 2019, 9am-2pm for 30 minute sessions to help you review your 2020 Medicare Plans. Registration required. Call 978-281-1750 to make an appointment.
