MEDICARE OPEN ENROLLMENT OCTOBER 15-DECEMBER 7: Many seniors can save money by switching plans – sometimes as much as $500 or even more. But you have to switch during Open Enrollment. Use the Book Now button below to make an appointment with a SHIIP Counselor to review your options.
The Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) provides free, unbiased education and assistance with Medicare. We can help you understand when and how to enroll, how to choose between the different Medicare options, and how to read your Medicare statements. We offer regular classes at both Senior Centers and the public libraries in Chapel Hill and Hillsborough. Or, you may choose to meet one-on-one with a Certified SHIIP Counselor to discuss your specific needs. We also offer a limited number of Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) counseling appointments for adults age 55 to 64.
Appointments with Certified Counselors are available at the Passmore Center and the Seymour Center. You can schedule your appointment online now, or call us at 919-245-4274.
