Washington, D.C. – In an effort to prepare seniors for changes to the 2016 Medicare program, on October 15th U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) will host two information sessions covering Medicare Open Enrollment. These informative presentations are free and open to the public.

“Medicare serves millions of older Americans in our country, however, understanding this program and selecting the best plan in anticipation of your health care needs can be very confusing,” said Johnson.  “Many folks are unaware of how Medicare actually operates because they never received a basic overview. As part of my ongoing effort to help seniors with their health care needs, I want to ensure folks are made aware of their options prior to selecting their plan for the upcoming year.  I encourage all Collin County seniors and caregivers to attend.”

The sessions, held in conjunction with the North Central Texas Area Agency on Aging (NCTAAA), will provide a complete overview of the program and will coincide with the annual Medicare and Medicare Prescription Drug Program open enrollment period, which runs between October 15th and December 7th. 

After the program presentation, benefits counselors with NCTAAA will be on hand to take questions regarding the enrollment process.  Please be aware that due to time constraints, the NCTAAA will contact interested attendees in order to set up a specific time for one-on-one counseling at a later date.
