Area Agency on Aging to Assist with Benefits Counseling Through Open Enrollment

October 15th - December 7th

Medicare plans may change their benefits and costs each year, so it is worth taking the time to review and compare Medicare prescription plans or Medicare Advantage.

Certified Benefits Counselors with the Area Agency on Aging also known as the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) are available to compare your current coverage with available options and assist you with enrollment.

Local Scheduled Presentations
Call your local State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) / Area Agency on Aging at 1-800-442-8845 or 903-218-6500 and speak to a Certified Benefits Counselor.
