Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Senior LinkAge Line has paused its in-person assistance, presentations and Medicare classes for the rest of the 2020 calendar year. This means there will be no in-person help or meetings during Medicare Open Enrollment this year, which happens annually from October 15 – December 7. But the Senior LinkAge Line can still help. We will be offering online classes and counseling sessions. They include:
- Virtual Welcome to Medicare classes twice a month
- Virtual Medicare Open Enrollment Period counseling sessions
- Appointments will be held between October 15 and December 6.
- You can begin making an appointment starting October 1.
- Beginning October 1, act quickly as space is limited.
Please remember that during this difficult time, the Senior LinkAge Line continues to be a resource for older adults and their families. We can help you find resources and make connections with alternative services if your provider or support network has changed or temporarily stopped providing services.
The Minnesota Board on Aging, Minnesota’s Area Agencies on Aging and the Minnesota Department of Human Services are working closely together to share information to make sure that all parts of the state have the resources they need to support older Minnesotans and caregivers.
To find out more information, call 800-333-2433 or chat with a specialist at www.minnesotahelp.info Monday – Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. The Senior LinkAge Line is a free service of the Minnesota Board on Aging and the Area Agencies on Aging.
