There are many factors to consider when educating oneself in the complex field of Medicare. Fortunately, there are professionals who specialize in this and can help navigate eligible enrollees through the process … and we know two of them!

Laverna Witkop and Dawn McConnell from Ford Insurance Agency will join us LIVE on the show today. They will cover all the basics of Medicare as well as talk about the open enrollment period, known as the Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan annual election period, or AEP, which is October 15 through December 7. It’s time to review and pay attention to changes. This also might be a good time to jump in! Open enrollment for individual health insurance plans is from November 1 to January 15, 2024.
