Dennison & Associates Agent completes specialized training

Dennison & Associates Nationwide Insurance and Financial Agency announces associate agent Samantha Eddy has completed training in Medicare Advantage and Part D Prescription Drug Plans. Samantha is now qualified to offer Medicare Basics, Plan Types and explain enrollment requirements. Medicare coverage is provided by the government and has four components. Part A is hospital insurance paid by the government for most beneficiaries. Part B is voluntary medical insurance. Part C is Medicare Advantage; regulated private insurance that substitutes for Parts A and B, and often D. Part D is voluntary prescription drug coverage. Most people will benefit from enrolling in Parts B and D, or by enrolling in Part C and taking out a private Medicare Advantage plan, during their Initial Enrollment Period.

Open Enrollment allows the Medicare customer to research, find, and subscribe to new plans, return to an original Medicare plan of his or her choosing, or not make any changes at all.

Medicare will have an open enrollment period from Oct. 15 to Dec.7. Samantha is looking forward to working with anyone who would like more information about Medicare and the plans.
