Louisiana Councils on Aging, Area Agencies on Aging, Aging and Disability Resource Centers, and their partners through the Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs are inviting every Medicare-eligible or enrolled senior or adult with a disability to visit their offices or an enrollment event and get their benefits updated.
“Medicare benefits change every year, and it is important that even enrolled Medicare beneficiaries be sure they are getting all the help they are eligible for,” said GOEA Deputy Assistant Director Karen Ryder. “This is a great time of year to have our counselors review Part A, B and D benefits, as well as educate seniors and adults with disabilities about all the wellness benefits available at no cost to them.”
The Capital Area Agency on Aging and their Aging & Disability Resource Center invites the public to call them at (800) 280-0908 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM or attend one of the free enrollment events to update their benefits or enroll in Medicare:
