Is your Medicare plan still right for you? An annual Medicare review may help you save, and SHIIP can help.

Medicare’s Annual Open Enrollment Period is October 15th – December 7th.  During that time, seniors who have Medicare coverage can make plan changes that may lower their costs. You could save by:

  • Evaluating eligibility for low-income subsidies
  • Choosing the best Part D Drug Plan based on current medications and preferred pharmacy
  • Exploring Medicare Advantage Plans


The Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) offers free individual counseling to assist you in selecting the best Medicare options for you. Call 336-243-3232 for an appointment today to see if you can save!


SHIIP Counselors screen for money saving programs, Extra Help and Medicare Savings Programs, during every appointment. Extra Help helps with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan premiums, deductibles, and copays. Medicare Savings Programs help with Medicare medical coverage premiums, deductibles, and copayments.  Contact your Davidson County SHIIP for more information.


SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program) is a division within the N.C. Department of Insurance. SHIIP counselors are not licensed insurance agents, and they do not sell, endorse, or oppose any product, plan, or company. If you have any questions about your specific plan, we encourage you to contact your insurance agent or the insurance company.
