Chuck Reponon with the Robson Insurance Agency says Medicare has changed the "open enrollment" period to end on December 7th, instead of the end of the year.

 

"Actually, most of the people realistically don't know about it.  They may or may not pay attention to any commercials that come on. They may or may not pay any attention to any notices that they might get from their existing health insurance company. So that's one of the things we're trying to do is get the word out that if you want to make a change or look at your options, now is the time to do it."

 

Reponen says the Medicare Advantage Plan is for those 65 and older or on disability.

 

He says there are only a few options available to us here in central oregon - but it's best if you consult your health insurance agency.
