The York County Area Agency on Aging is still offering free, one-on-one Medicare benefits counseling for senior citizens during the open enrollment period for 2019 coverage.

The assistance is provided through the state's APPRISE health insurance counseling program, designed to help older Pennsylvanians understand their benefits.

During open enrollment, which ends Friday, Dec. 7, Medicare beneficiaries can review their plans and make any necessary changes in their coverage for the coming year.
