 Medicare Open Enrollment

With the seasons changing and the cooler weather, we look forward to many fun holidays and events! However, you don’t want to overlook Medicare Open Enrollment at this time! Each year from Oct. 15th to Dec. 7th Medicare allows members to compare Part D Prescription plans and switch with no penalty. It’s a good idea to compare these plans so you get the best bang for your buck. Things to consider include: Monthly premiums, deductibles, copays, and pharmacy network statuses. Also your payment options, which include a bill monthly or having it deducted from Social Security benefits. Good Samaritan is more than happy to assist residents and cottagers with researching and enrolling in these plans. Residents/families can schedule an appointment with our accounting staff during this period. Call Aaron Mast at 217-223-8717 ext. 4980. NOTE: Cottagers and family members must observe Covid Protocols including wearing a mask, making an appointment, and screening at the front desk upon your arrival. We appreciate your cooperation! COTTAGERS: As in the past, you will need to bring your red, white, and blues Medicare card and a current List of medicines (or bottles)

Happy Birthday

The Patter Knee Slapper

A Bear walks into a bar and says, “Give me a whiskey and….cola.”

“Why the big pause?” asks the bartender.

The bear shrugged and said, “I’m not sure; I was born with them!”
