Conference Call on Medicare’s Annual Open Enrollment Period

The Secretary of HHS’s Office on Disability
and
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
Invite you to a conference call about:

Medicare’s Annual Open Enrollment Period
Monday, October 31, 2011
3:30pm-4pm ET
Dial: 866-501-5502 Conference ID: 22833504
TTY:  1-800-855-2880

This year Medicare’s open enrollment period has changed.  It began October 15, 2011 and will end December 7, 2011. But, it lasts 7 weeks longer than before!  This gives people with disabilities and seniors more time to compare and find the best plan that meets their individual needs. This change also ensures that Medicare has enough time to process plan choices so coverage can begin on January 1, 2012.

Please join Henry Claypool, Director of the Secretary’s Office on Disability, and Jonathan Blum, CMS’ Deputy Administrator and the Director of the Center for Medicare, in a conference call to discuss Medicare’s Open Enrollment Period, changes in Medicare Advantage and Part D plans for next year. They will also review information that consumers with disabilities, including those who have both Medicare and Medicaid, should consider when making health care plan choices and important changes to the Medicare program under the Affordable Care Act.

For those of you who have Medicare or work or live with someone who does, please join us in this valuable opportunity:

This call will be recorded and will be available until midnight Monday, November 7, 2011:

Dial: 1-855-859-2056 Conference ID: 22833504
