Age 65 is when many are close to retiring and beginning endless adventures.

Age 65 is also the age when people qualify for Medicare coverage.

“You can sign up for Medicare B months before they turn 65,” shared Patient Access Manager Alison Kennison. “It is beneficial to get yourself ready for the diverse world of Medicare and insurance.”

Close to retiring? Unsure what insurance plan is right for you and your family? Attend JRMC’s Open EnROLLment open house from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Alfred Dickey Library lower level meeting room. Enjoy spring rolls, sweet rolls and other snacks as JRMC experts offer advice and answer questions regarding insurance and open enrollment. There is no charge to attend.

Selecting health insurance plans don’t have to be ‘sticky.’ That’s why JRMC is helping to educate individuals during the open enrollment period.

The event is open to any adult who may have questions on open enrollment. Families are welcome to attend.

“Our goal is to offer pressure-free guidance. JRMC doesn’t sell insurance or advocate for any certain brand,” Kennison said. “We simply want to help the community navigate the process of purchasing the best plan and provide tools to the complicated world of insurance.”

North Dakota’s open enrollment period begins Friday, Nov. 1 and ends Sunday, Dec. 15.

Medicare’s open enrollment period ends Saturday, Dec. 7.
