Health Screenings

Senior Care Plus, a Medicare Advantage Plan from Hometown Health, will offer these free screenings to attendees age 50 and older, regardless of your health insurance carrier:
The Annual Open Enrollment period for Medicare health and drug plans begin on October 15, and ends December 7. Each year, plan costs and covered benefits can change. Medicare beneficiaries should look at their Medicare coverage choices and decide what options best meet their needs. Beneficiaries who need assistance can visit, call 1-800- MEDICARE, or contact their State health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP).

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that more people with Medicare will have access to higher quality Medicare Advantage (MA) plans, and for the fifth straight year, enrollment is projected to increase to a new all-time high, while premiums remain affordable.
The average MA premium submitted by health plans for 2015 would increase by $2.94 next year, to $33.90 per month. However, CMS estimates the actual 2015 MA average premium will increase by only $1.30, as more beneficiaries elect to enroll in lower cost plans. The vast majority of MA enrollees will face little or no premium increase for next year with 61 percent of beneficiaries not seeing any premium increase at all.

More MA plans will offer supplemental benefits that traditional Medicare beneficiaries value, such as dental and vision benefits.
