OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Insurance Department's Medicare Assistance Program is hosting free statewide events to assist seniors during the Medicare open enrollment period that runs Oct. 15-Dec. 7.

During open enrollment, Medicare-eligible consumers can sign up for coverage under a Medicare Advantage plan or Part D prescription drug plan, as well as change their options for the coming year.

At this year's events general information will be offered about typical legal issues that arise as individuals age, including resources available to seniors and common legal documents such as trusts, power of attorney and living wills.

Last year— after partnering with other agencies — the assistance program assisted more than 22,000 people.
