ALBANY – New York State’s Office for the Aging is reminding older New Yorkers on Medicare to review and make any needed changes to their plans for the upcoming year.

Officials say the open enrollment period ends on Saturday, with plan changes taking effect January 1.

Furthermore, officials say Medicare health and prescription drug plan recipients can make changes each year to costs, coverage and what providers and pharmacies are in their network.

The state Office for the Aging aims to help older New Yorkers be as independent as possible for as long as possible through advocacy, development and delivery of person-centered, consumer-oriented, and cost-effective policies, programs and services which support and empower older adults and their families, in partnership with the network of public and private organizations which serve them.
