Starting October 1st, we will take requests for appointments with our Health Insurance Counselors to go over coverage of Medicare Part D drug plans and Advantage Plans for the coming year.

This year we ask those who want an in-person appointment, to be fully vaccinated against

COVID-19.  Masks are to be worn when entering the building and during the appointment unless counselor and client agree to remove them. Please bring your vaccine card with you.

We also offer remote counseling via ZOOM with screen sharing or by phone and are also offering limited evening appointments and appts in Kannapolis.

You may also go to Medicare.gov to review your options.
