Annual Medicare Part D open enrollment October 15 through December 7

365

The Department of Public Health and Social Services would like to announce that the Annual Election Period for the 2022 Medicare drug plans, nationally known as Medicare Part D, will begin October 15, 2021, and will end on December 7, 2021.

Plan costs and covered benefits can change from year to year. Throughout this period, Medicare beneficiaries may enroll in a drug plan, switch to a new drug plan or terminate from this voluntary prescription drug program.

People with Medicare should look at their coverage choices and decide the options that best fits their health needs. They can visit Medicare.gov (http://www.medicare.gov), call 1-800-MEDICARE, or contact the Guam Medicare Assistance Program (Guam MAP) to learn about the prescription drug plans available for 2022.  For those Medicare beneficiaries who do not wish to change their current coverage, you do not need to re-enroll.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Division of Senior Citizens In-Person Counseling may be scheduled by phone on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. starting October 15, 2021 through December 7, 2021. The Division of Senior Citizens also has curbside pick-up and delivery of documents located at 130 University Drive, Castle Mall Suite 8, in Mangilao.

Medicare Part D presentation will be provided via Zoom during the scheduled times listed below:
