During Open Enrollment, people with Medicare have until December 7 to review their health and drug plan options, and make the best decision based on financial and medical needs. Re-enrollment and plan changes will take effect on January 1, 2020. Medicare health and drug plan costs and covered benefits can change from year to year. That’s why it’s important for people with Medicare to review their health care plan during Open Enrollment to ensure they have the right coverage for their financial and medical needs. I encourage people with Medicare to review and update their coverage choices before the closing date. Otherwise, they may have to wait another year to make changes.

The relationship among the Covenant Regional Thumb Network ensures that Thumb communities have an independent hospital, like Deckerville Community Hospital close to home that they can continue to depend on for quality care. It provides the assurance that if there is a need for more advanced procedures, the appropriate care is delivered through the coordinated relationship that the Thumb hospitals have with Covenant.
