• We’re now in the thick of the Medicare Open Enrollment Period, the annual year-end window in which seniors can change their Medicare plans, and with the open enrollment period has come a barrage of advertisements using everything from former football star Joe Namath to promises of free glasses and hearing aids to attempt to sell plans. The Suffolk County Office of the Aging is on to this scheme, and they have a bevy of counselors on hand this season to help seniors understand their Medicare options and risks. The Beacon’s full story is online here.
