ALLENTOWN, Oct. 15 – Beginning Monday, Oct. 21, state Rep. Peter Schweyer, D-Lehigh, will hold weekly Medicare open enrollment meetings in his district office, 1501 Lehigh St., Suite 206.

“Every Monday until open enrollment ends on Dec. 7, we will have an APPRISE counselor in my district office to assist people with signing up for Medicare, or those wanting to change their plan,” Schweyer said. “Now is the time for current Medicare users to re-evaluate their options and compare them to other plans on the market.”

The visits will take place Mondays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Appointments are required by calling Schweyer’s office at 610-791-6270.

The APPRISE counselor will be available to help answer questions about original Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans, Medigap plans, Medicare drug plans, PACE/PACENET prescription-drug coverage and various low-income assistance programs, such as the Medicare Savings Program and Extra Help.
