Get Ready for 2022 Medicare Open Enrollment:
Free Seven-Week Webinar Series for Oklahomans
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) will hold its annual Medicare Open Enrollment webinar series from October 6 through November 17, 2021. The 7-week webinar series will educate Oklahomans on the different parts of Medicare, eligibility, enrollment options and how they can personalize their Medicare plan based on their needs. Participants can sign up for one or all seven webinars. Each webinar is free, but registration is required.
Expert speakers from the Oklahoma Medicare Assistance Program (MAP) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will lead seven educational sessions. This year, OID is offering one of the sessions in Spanish to help the Spanish-speaking community learn more about their options.
“We are excited to host the ‘Welcome to Medicare’ session in Spanish,” MAP Director Ray Walker said. “MAP offers one-on-one counseling and information available in both English and Spanish. All services are free, unbiased and confidential.”
In addition to the staff counselors within the department, MAP contracts with several agencies around the state to provide the same types of Medicare education and support. You can find a list of these agencies at www.map.oid.ok.gov.
