Medicare Open Enrollment Has Begun

October 29, 2021

Dear Friend,

I am writing to remind you that the Medicare Open Enrollment period is running now through Tuesday, December 7, 2021. During this period, seniors who rely on Medicare can make changes to their health plans or prescription drug plans, pick a Medicare Advantage Plan or return to Original Medicare.

Even if you are happy with your coverage, this is an opportunity to revisit whether your current plan is still the best option. Available plans vary every year, and there might be better cost or coverage options that suit your specific health needs. Visit or call 1-800-633-4277 to find the plan that works best for you.

As we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to make sure you are covered.

Earlier this year, I hosted a Senior Forum on Medicare and Social Security. This event featured presentations from experts at the Social Security Administration and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services about how to access important federal benefits. In case you missed it, see here for a video of the event.

If you or your family members need help navigating federal agencies or accessing important federal benefits, please send me an email or call (410) 832-8890 during normal business hours. My staff and I are here to assist you.
