Kay Hinds Kay Hinds
An Albany group is making sure folks who need to enroll for medicare are informed.

Open enrollment runs from October 15th through December 7th.

The SOWEGA Council on Aging has staff and trained volunteers to help those 65 and older enroll or change their plan.

Picking a plan can be overwhelming. "We help them select the very best plan for them. The one that covers their needs and has the most reseaonable costs. So it's a very valuable program," said Kay Hind, the Executive Director for the SOWEGA Council on Aging.

"We are very knowledgeable, we are trained. We are aware of all the updates so we can tell them those things personally," said Brian Ramey, the coordinator of Georgia Cares program for SOWEGA Council on Aging.

The help is free, but you should make a reservation. Call 229-432-1124, extension 183 to make an appointment.
