Niagara County will be hosting a series of community meetings regarding Medicare choices for seniors in 2023 as well as other healthcare program options, according to Darlene DiCarlo, Director of the Niagara County Office for the Aging.   The annual Medicare enrollment period runs from October 15 through December 7. 

“There are of many choices for seniors, there can be program changes from year to year, and, quite frankly, it can get overwhelmingly very quickly, so we host these meetings to provide the latest information and really spend a lot of time answering people’s questions,” said DiCarlo. 

DiCarlo said the meetings will include discussions on Medicare Part D, NYS EPIC and the “Extra Help” Low Income Subsidy Program.
