The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering free personalized counseling during Medicare’s annual open enrollment period, which runs through Dec. 7.

The open enrollment period is when Medicare beneficiaries can review their coverage and make changes if needed.

Comparing plans and making changes by Dec. 7 gives Medicare enough time to process those changes to ensure that the new coverage will begin on Jan. 1, 2020, the agency stated in a news release.

Counselors through the agency’s APPRISE program will provide beneficiaries with one-on-one assistance at locations throughout York County during the open enrollment period.

Appointments are necessary and can be made by calling the APPRISE scheduling line at 717-771-9042 or 1-800-632-9073, according to the agency.
