The Baldwin County Commission’s Department of Council on Aging had a busy, yet successful Medicare Open Enrollment season which lasted from October 15, 2023, through December 7, 2023. During this time, the Council on Aging reported a 28% increase in clients with savings and a 95% increase in the amount of savings when compared to the 2022 Medicare Open Enrollment numbers.
Five counselors helped a total of 1,723 clients during this period with 584 of those clients receiving savings totaling $964,884.72.
During open enrollment each year, Medicare recipients are encouraged to have their insurance plans reviewed for changes in coverage for the upcoming year. This is a FREE service and has resulted in thousands of dollars in savings for Baldwin County senior citizens.
The mission of the Baldwin County Council on Aging is to serve as an advocate for Baldwin County senior citizens. For more information about services offered please call the Baldwin County Council on Aging at 251.972.8506, or visit their office at 22251 Palmer Street, Robertsdale, AL.
