Smith announced that the City of Bayonne will host a Medicare open enrollment event on Wednesday, October 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., in the City Council Chambers, at 630 Avenue C.Â Â The event will give Medicare patients the opportunity to compare plans, and make sure that they have the right health and prescription drug coverage.Â Â It is time for Medicare patients to review their Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.Â Â It is also time to consider health insurance that works with Medicare, including Medigap and Medicare Advantage plans.
