Medicare open enrollment has started.

You can enroll in a new Medicare Part-D program through Dec. 7.

It is always a good idea to review your policy every year during the open enrollment period.

Medicare beneficiaries can choose their prescription drug plan, Medigap options and Medicare advantage plans for plans beginning Jan. 1, 2022.

If you need help, one of the Lexington Senior Center social workers are here for you.

Call Amanda Patrick to schedule your appointment at 859-278-6072.

Make sure you bring a list of your medications – prescription and over-the-counter – as well as your Medicare card to the appointment.

Also, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program can provide help over the phone or limited in-person appointments.

Contact 1-866-516-3051 for more information. Or you can compare plans online at
