How to Enroll in Medicare

Medicare, the federal health insurance program for those over 65 and certain younger individuals with disabilities, plays a crucial role in safeguarding health and finances. With the open enrollment period from October 15, 2023, to December 7, 2023, here's why timely registration matters.

Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, skilled nursing facility care, hospice, and certain home health services. Enrolling ensures you receive vital medical care without crippling costs.

Medicare Part B covers doctors' services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services. Regular check-ups and screenings are essential for early detection and cost savings.

Medicare Part D helps cover prescription drug costs, including vaccines. Access to necessary medications is crucial for managing health conditions affordably.

Registering during the open enrollment period prevents late enrollment penalties, reducing long-term healthcare expenses. Existing Medicare users can adjust their plans to better suit their needs during this period. Missing the deadline means waiting for the next enrollment period, leaving you without vital coverage.

Register easily by phone (1-800-390-3300 or 1-800-633-4227), online at, or contact Social Worker Ericka Jones at 314-291-6550 or here.

Enroll in Medicare during the open period to secure your health and financial stability. Don't miss this opportunity for a healthier and more secure future.
