DANVILLE, PA – The new year brought some changes to Medicare and Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) wants people with Medicare to know how it might affect them.

Medicare has a new Open Enrollment Period from January 1 through March 31. During this time, those with Medicare Advantage plans have a one-time opportunity to select a different Medicare Advantage plan, change to a Medicare Supplement plan, or disenroll from a Medicare Advantage plan and return to Original Medicare.

Income requirements for financial assistance also changed for 2019. Beneficiaries who did not previously qualify for financial assistance may now be eligible for help with premiums and copays.

Extra help for prescription drug costs is also available for those qualify.
