6 Call the Office of Aging for an Appointment. The Medicare Annual Open Enrollment Period for 2019 will be from October 15 to December 7. During this period each year, Medicare beneficiaries can join, switch or drop their Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage coverage. Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage plans change the coverage and costs each year, so it is important to review your plan and compare it to others on the market that are available to Lancaster County residents. APPRISE, a free health insurance counseling program for Pennsylvanians with Medicare, will have counselors available during the entire Annual Open Enrollment Period. These unbiased and friendly counselors will help you understand your options in comparing Part D and Medicare Advantage plans at the following events in the community. This counseling is free. If you’d like to schedule an appointment, and you are already in a Medicare Advantage plan or Prescription Drug plan, please call Lancaster County Office of Aging, (717) 299-7979 or 1-800-801-3070. You can also email the agency at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
