McCollum Discusses Medicare Open Enrollment With Seniors
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) spoke with Fourth District seniors on Tuesday morning about open enrollment in Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D, which continues through December 7.
The event, organized by the Metropolitan Area Agency on Agency and held at the West 7th Street Community Center, included a discussion by trained experts about Medicare options and a tutorial on how to use Medicare's Plan Finder.
"Right now, Medicare beneficiaries should review and choose a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan or a Medicare Advantage plan for 2017," McCollum said. "You have until December 7 to make any changes you need to your Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D selection."
McCollum also discussed her strong support for Medicare, Social Security, and the newly-reauthorized Older Americans Act.
"I am working to keep the promises made over 80 years ago with Social Security and 50 years ago with Medicare," McCollum said. "And I will continue fighting so no legislation is passed that cuts your benefits or makes it more difficult for you to see your doctor."
