In preparation for Medicare Open Enrollment, the Bladen County Division of Aging Services will be offering counseling sessions by appointment only. We are partnering with the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) to schedule calls with seniors (60+) who wish to speak with a counselor to discuss plans and changes to their Medicare plan. Appointments will be scheduled as follows:
Tuesdays: October 26th, November 2nd , November 9th, and November 30th
9 am –
10 am –
11 am –
1 pm –
2 pm –
3 pm –
Seniors should expect a call from Barbara Pope from the SHIIP office in Raleigh (919-935-9647). Seniors will need to have their Medicare Card and their list of prescription medications with them. If they have hearing issues or have trouble understanding things it is nice to have a friend or family member with them. The information will be mailed to them for their review to make an informed decision.
Please feel free to contact the Bladen County Division of Aging Services at 910-872-6330 to schedule an appointment.
