Medicare Open Enrollment

Saturday on The Local Take on WCLK I talked with Dr. Renard Murray, the Consortium Administrator with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for the Southeast region. Dr. Murray explains that 10,000 new members join Medicare each day as the Baby Boomer Generation ages into the program. Those new members have already received the new cards, older members will also begin to receive the new cards. 

This week on The Local Take I speak with Dr. Renard Murray, the Consortium Administrator with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. He shares that the open enrollment period is now until December 7th. 

He explains that everyone who uses Medicare should sit down with an advisor to go over any healthcare needs that have changed over the last 12 months. You can reach a customer service advisor by calling 1-800-MEDICARE. Additionally you can request the new Medicare book.
