General enrollments are still being accepted for Medicare Parts A and B. The enrollment time ends on March 31st. Kathleen Brinning with Washington County Hospital and Clinics says they have a volunteer with the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) who can help with enrolling in Medicare or for those who wish to change from the Medicare Advantage program as well. Any changes made will become effective the first of July.
Brinning says their SHIIP volunteer is available during the day on Tuesdays, but other arrangements can be made if needed. Look at this story on kciiradio.com to find out how to contact the SHIIP volunteer at the hospital.
