It's time for a newsletter to sum up 2015 and provide a heads-up for 2016. The section that often gets the most attention is the "News from Members" section. We'd like to hear from you about changes in your life, trips, adventures, and even mishaps. A photo is appreciated. We need your stories by November 18. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Jack Hannon's Notes for Medicare Open Enrollment for 2016
The times are a-changing. Jack Hannon has prepared some notes that all medicare-eligible retirees should read. The two big things that can come as a very expensive surprise are prescriptions in Tier 3 (or possibly an even higher Tier. This can also put you into the dreaded "donut hole". Read Jack's notes and his suggestions that can potentially save you a lot of money. See comara.org/benefits/Jack's-Notes-Medicare-Open-Enrollment-for 2016.htm
A correction was issued for this document on November 17. There was a discussion of a "Deductable" that may be applied to Tier 3 prescriptions that could affect your total cost. This could not be confirmed with OneExchange, and was deleted from the document on November 17.
