Cullman County Commission on Aging will counsel clients in-person during the Medicare Open Enrollment period BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. We are now taking appointments for the annual Open Enrollment period, which spans Oct. 15-Dec. 7. We will NOT be accepting walk-ins during the Open Enrollment time frame.

Clients with appointments must call upon arrival and remain in their vehicles.

All clients must be evaluated (temperature check, symptoms check) and must wear a face covering/mask before entering the COA building.

Please bring your Medicare card and a list of current medications (med name and dosage)

If you would like to be evaluated for extra help, you must provide proof of income (must have current letter from social security)

COUNSELING VIA MAIL-IN PACKET OR EMAIL

If you prefer counseling to take place via mail-in forms, please call 256-734-1241, and a packet will be mailed to you. The forms in your packet must be returned to our office no later than Monday, Nov. 23, 2020.

For email counseling, please email bfaullk@co.cullman.al.us.

(A drop-box has been added to the front door of the COA for your convenience if you wish to drop off your packet in person or after hours)
