Free counseling available to help you sign up for Medicare during open enrollment: Oct. 15 - Dec. 7

If you are eligible for Medicare, you have a short window to sign up - starting Thursday.

Open enrollment for Medicare is Oct. 15 - Dec. 7.

Medicare looks complicated, but there are counselors available in Colorado to help - at no charge.

The Colorado State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) provides free, personalized and unbiased counseling to help you find the best plan available in your area.

Counselors can also help you apply for programs that help with out-of-pocket costs related to Medicare.

Organizers warn that SHIP counselors' calendars will fill up quickly with appointments, especially closer to the end of open enrollment.

Call Colorado SHIP at 1-888-696-7213 to be connected with a counselor in your area.
