October 15 to December 7 is the Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP), which is the one time a year that Medicare beneficiaries can change their plans.  Experts say it is important for everyone who is on Medicare to review their plan options for 2020. 

Amy Rhine, MD, MDX Hawai'i Medical Director, said, "Because there are so many options for seniors for Medicare plans in Hawaii, we felt hosting the Medicare Shop, and Compare Expos for Kupunas and caregivers was a must. The expos are a great opportunity to learn about the coverage options for 2020.  Medicare can be confusing, and it's good to get all the information and have your questions answered by local experts in one place."
