Local Legislators Offer Assistance with Medicare Enrollment

NAZARETH – State Reps. Joe Emrick (R-Mt. Bethel) and Marcia Hahn (R-Wind Gap) will be holding special office hours dedicated to assisting senior citizens with open enrollment in and changes to the Medicare program.
“The open enrollment period lasts until Sunday, Dec. 7,” Emrick said. “While Medicare is a federal program, we as state representatives feel a responsibility to offer assistance on the local level for anyone who needs it.”
A member of Emrick’s staff will answer Medicare questions in his Mt. Bethel district office from 1:30-3:30 p.m. on the following Tuesdays: Oct. 28, Nov. 18 and 25, and Dec. 2. Please call the office, which is located at 5 Mt. Bethel Plaza, at (570) 897-0401 to make an appointment.
A representative from APPRISE, the state’s free health insurance counseling program, will be available to answer questions in Hahn’s Wind Gap district office from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the following Thursdays: Oct. 30; Nov. 6, 13 and 20; and Dec. 4. Anyone wishing to schedule an appointment should call the office, located at 196 West Moorestown Road, at (610) 746-2100.
“Earlier in the year, there were rumors of extensive changes to Medicare Part D,” Hahn added. “While many of those proposals were not implemented, there are some things of which new and current enrollees need to be made aware. These appointments are opportunities to get the latest information and ask any questions you might have.
