Medicare Annual Enrollment Begins Oct 15th

October 5, 2021

I encourage you to choose your trusted Credit Union for your Medicare needs. Goldenwest has local, licensed sales agents who simplify the enrollment process by helping members make informed decisions about Medicare. Hundreds of Goldenwest members have already benefitted from consulting with our agents for their initial Medicare enrollment, or to modify their current supplemental plans to meet their unique circumstances.

Each year, Medicare allows enrollees to make changes to their current coverage. The Annual Enrollment Period, or AEP, begins October 15th and goes through December 7th. During this important time of year for our Medicare-eligible members, Goldenwest agents are available to meet with you at your convenience -- either in-person at our branch locations, in your home, or virtually. Furthermore, throughout AEP, we are hosting multiple free Medicare seminars. You are invited to participate in these seminars face-to-face at branch locations, or virtually from the comfort of your home.

If you aren’t quite old enough for Medicare, but your 65th birthday isn’t too far in the distant future, Goldenwest’s agents are ready to help you understand your options and feel confident about choosing the best coverage for your personal situation. We are pleased to offer Medicare supplemental plans from top-rated carriers, including: United Healthcare; SelectHealth; and, Regence.

During AEP, I hope you take advantage of this free member benefit to learn more about Medicare, and receive expert assistance with your plan. To meet with one of our licensed sales agents about Medicare, contact Nate Murdock at 801-302-4020, Sam Hart at 801-786-8043, or Cody Mikulecky at 801-302-4057.

In other Credit Union news, I am excited to announce we have broken ground on the first Goldenwest branch outside of Utah! Construction is underway, and we are looking forward to serving members in the Rexburg, Idaho area in early 2022.

As always, our highest honor is to serve our members. Thanks for giving Goldenwest the opportunity to take care of you!
