Medicare Open Enrollment Starts Soon. Let us Help You Navigate the Changes!
Each year, insurance companies can make changes to Medicare plans that can impact out-ofpocket costs such as monthly premiums, deductibles, drug costs, and provider or pharmacy co-pays. Given these yearly changes, it is a good idea to re-evaluate your current Medicare plan each year to make sure it still meets your needs.
The Michigan Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP) educates, counsels and empowers older adults and individuals with disabilities, to make informed health benefit decisions. Our highly qualified COA MMAP counselors assist Medicare beneficiaries in making non-bias health & prescription plan decisions while getting the maximum benefit from Medicare.
Last year, our MMAP counselors met with over 100 people to review their health & prescription plans. About a third of the people were able to find a better plan, with the average person saving over $1,000 with their new plan. One person saved over $4,300.
In addition to MMAP Counseling, there are many resources available to those 60+ but it is not always easy to find out where to turn or who can help. The Cass County COA has on-staff MMAP counselors who can make referrals, provide guidance and help you gain access to outside agencies.
Call (269) 445-8110 and ask to speak to an MMAP Options Counselor in the Care Services Department
