On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, I participated in the call from the State Treasurer. They covered a lot of material but it seemed that some of the answers conflicted with what they previously said. Therefore I will not attempt to explain it to you. Near the end of September you will receive a brochure from the Treasurers office explaining all the different plans. You must make an enrollment choice between October 15th and November 18th. You can do this by phone or over the web. They will explain all of this in the material they will mail to you. A lot of you are like me and are in the Medicare Advantage Enhanced Plan. We now pay $33.00 per month but that will increase to $66.00 per month effective January 1, 2016. There will also be some changes in deductibles and copays. Just wait untill you receive the information in late September to make your decision. The State will continue to fund the insurance at the same level. Any increases in cost will be coming from the Insurance Companies.

           Make a decision, But always keep your mind open.

Stay flexible and consider the possibility that you're wrong.

There might be a better way.

Like all weak men, he laid exaggerated stress on not changing one's mind.
