Hamm reminds Medicare beneficiaries open enrollment ends Dec. 31
 
BISMARCK, N.D.-North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm reminded Medicare beneficiaries today that Medicare Part D open enrollment ends Wednesday, Dec. 31. 

"There are significant changes in the 2009 plans, so it's important for consumers to review their options, even if they're happy with the plan they had in 2008," Hamm said. 

Eligible North Dakotans can call 2-1-1 to switch plans or sign up for a plan. After answering a few questions, a customized comparison list of Part D plans will be sent to callers. Once a plan is chosen, joining is easy. Beneficiaries can: 

-Enroll directly with the plan by calling the plan's toll-free number 
-Call their insurance agent 
-Go to www.medicare.gov or call Medicare at 1-800-633-4227 
-Call RSVP at 701-258-5436 12:30-3:30 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 
-Call SHIC at 1-888-575-6611 

North Dakota Medicare beneficiaries have 48 plans to consider. Beneficiaries who are satisfied with the plans they have do not have to do anything-they will be re-enrolled automatically. 

For more information, call SHIC at 1-888-575-6611.
