Open enrollment in the Medicare program is now underway and the illinois department on aging is offering free counseling to help you get signed up.  Enrollment runs through December seventh so now is a good time to start reviewing your Medicare Part D, Medicare Advantage plan, and other current coverage, says agency spokesperson Kimberly Parker.

Parker comments

The Department on Aging has free assistance available.  You can either call the Senior Helpline during regular business hours at 1-800-548-9034 or visit the agency’s website for a list of local sites offering free counseling.
