During the present Medicare Open Enrolment period, Paul Barrett Insurance Services has launched an advisory service to guide senior citizens on their options and advise on permitted changes.

Paul Barrett Insurance Services based in Huntington Station, New York, has launched an advisory service for seniors that offers detailed explanations of the various choices available under the Medicare system. The online service is supported by telephone consultations and home visits to help seniors choose the most suitable coverage, as well as advise on plan changes.

More information on this initiative is available at:

Medicare is a confusing subject with many different plans on offer, as well as numerous supplementary care options. The professional advice service has been launched to help seniors make an informed choice and enable them to pick the correct package to best cover their care needs in an affordable manner.

The federal government in the USA provides the Medicare program to ensure over people 65 and over, and some under 65, have affordable access to medical services and treatments. The program is funded from a number of sources, partly by Social Security and Medicare taxes collected on earnings, partly through Medicare Insurance premiums, and partly by the federal budget.

Licensed to operate in New York State and 15 other US States, Paul Barrett Insurance Services’ advisory scheme explains the ins and outs of the various enrolment periods that are available each year. It details the dates of each period and specifies which aspects of a plan may be altered during each period. Many changes can be made during selected enrolment periods but only a single change is permitted during others.

Currently, the advice is being provided on the Medicare Open Enrollment which happens between January 1st. and March 31st. Unlike the Annual enrollment period in the autumn when unlimited changes can be made, only a single change may be made during the open enrollment period. The advice service offers information on which aspects of a plan may be changed and details exactly when the change becomes effective.

A spokesperson for the company said: “The Medicare Open Enrollment period is essentially Medicare trying to give people one last opportunity to improve their coverage situation. If you are on a Medicare Advantage plan and have not scrutinized it, to see how well it fits your health and budgetary needs for this year, now is the time to do so and to make a change if it is needed.”
