News & Views from Campus: November 6th – November 12th

With the seasons changing and cooling weather, we look forward to many fun, exciting holidays and events. However, you don’t want to overlook Medicare Open Enrollment during this time, as it could affect you for the entire year of 2023.

Each year from October 15 to December 7, Medicare allows members to compare Part D Prescription plans and switch to different companies or plans at no penalty. It is a good idea to compare prescription plans to determine the plan that gives you “the biggest bang for your buck.” Things to consider include: monthly premium, deductibles, copays for medicines, pharmacy network status, among others. You also need to consider how you want to pay for the insurance plan; you may choose to have the plan billed to you monthly or have the amount deducted from your Social Security benefit.

Good Samaritan is happy to help its residents and cottagers with researching and enrolling in part D plans. Residents/families are invited to schedule an appointment with our Accounting staff during the Open Enrollment period. Please call Aaron Mast to schedule an appointment or for more information. NOTE: Cottagers will need to bring a list of medicines (or bottles) and their red, white, and blue Medicare card.

Mystery Meal Reminder

You must reserve your spot for Wednesday or Thursday Mystery Meal with Sally by calling extension 4227! This event is open to both residents and cottagers alike, so come join the fun!!

Happy Birthday
