Get help with Medicare Open Enrollment at the library

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane County Library District will host Medicare Open Enrollment Workshops at five of its libraries in partnership with Aging & Long Term Care of Eastern Washington and Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors.

In order to change Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D plan for 2019, enrollees must make changes during the Open Enrollment period from October 15 to December 7, 2018.

Choosing the best Medicare plan for each individual situation can be complicated but reviewing plan options can save you money.

Trained volunteers from ALTCEW and SHIBA will provide personalized help that takes the individual’s needs into consideration, just in time for open enrollment.

To receive advice tailored to your needs, it is recommended that you bring your Medicare card and list of medications with dosages. Assistance is free, unbiased, and provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

The following are the days and times for the Medicare Open Enrollment Workshops at our libraries. 

Cheney Library: Friday, Oct 26, 1–4pm

Deer Park Library: Friday, Nov 2, 1–4pm

Argonne Library: Wednesday, Nov 7, 1–4pm
