Guy, President; Michael L. Hewitt; Tom Jarboe; Todd B. Morgan; John E. O’Connor; and the Department of Aging & Human Services Medstar Medicare Choice Leaving St. Mary’s County In 2015, Medstar Choice, a Medi- care Advantage plan began offering coverage to St. Mary’s County Medi- care beneficiaries as an alternate to receiving benefits from the tradi- tional Medicare program. Effective Jan. 1, 2018, these policies will no longer be offered in St. Mary’s and those who are currently enrolled will be automatically enrolled back into the traditional Medicare Part A & B program. At this time it is not known if another company will of- fer a Medicare Advantage plan in our area. This change does not af- fect anyone enrolled in the Medstar Family Choice Medicaid program. It is important that individuals affected by this loss of coverage seek out en- rollment into a Medicare Part D pre- scription plan and possibly a Medi- care Medigap policy as well. Any- one who needs assistance reviewing their options may call the St. Mary’s County Department of Aging & Hu- man Services at 301-475-4200, ext. *1050, to schedule an appointment.
