GROTON — It’s that time of year again! If you have a Medicare Prescription Drug or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO or PPO), you should receive a notice from your plan by the end of September.

That notice outlines changes to be made to your plan for 2015. It is important to review, understand and save this information.

During Medicare Open Enrollment, from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, you will be able to change your plan for next year. If you would like help understanding your upcoming changes and options, a trained SHINE counselor is available to offer FREE and CONFIDENTIAL counseling on all Medicare and related health insurance programs.

To make an appointment with a SHINE counselor, call the senior center now at 978-448-1170.
