The one constant about Medicare is change, according to Nancy Lombard of the Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging. In a well-attended presentation at the Wilton Senior Center on Thursday, Oct. 4, Ms. Lombard outlined some of the changes and updates in the Medicare program for 2013 — as a prelude before the annual enrollment period takes place.
"The Medicare annual enrollment period is from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7," said Ms. Lombard, a long-term options specialist, to an audience of approximately 30 seniors. "This is when you can evaluate your options and make a change for the following year. ... It is important to take the time to compare plans."
