ATLANTA – Five weeks remain for 1.5 million beneficiaries in Georgia to review health and drug plans during the Medicare Open Enrollment period, which continues through Dec. 7.

GeorgiaCares provides individual counseling, education and outreach to Medicare beneficiaries around the state through the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP). This program helps beneficiaries identify and understand Medicare health and drug plans, including Medicare Supplement Insurance, prescription drug coverage, Medicare Advantage Plans, long-term care insurance and other health insurance coverage options.

GeorgiaCares-trained counselors offer free help to those on Medicare who are 65 years or older, and to qualified people under 65 with disabilities, so that they do not have to pay someone to help them understand their benefits.
