Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging, Inc. are the experts on Medicare, and can help you with choosing a health plan that will meet your needs! The best way for you to access their services is by calling the Senior LinkAge Line. But, before you call, here is some information that is good to know:

  • The Senior LinkAge Line has increased staff and expanded its hours to 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday. Even with these changes, wait times are anticipated to be longer than normal, so please be patient. 
  • Before calling, prepare a complete list of your prescription drugs and dosages. This will allow them to better assist with reviewing options. Also have your Medicare Card out.
