This Organization helps the Blind and Handicapped have access to Books

When we don’t experience a disability and don’t have a loved one going through it, we rarely think about those that live with one. Blindness or being physically handicapped makes life difficult for those who experience it and daily life is altered in every way. The Florida Bureau of Braille and Talking Books Library Services looks out for people with these disabilities and serves them by distributing books and magazines in braille and audio formats. The service is free for those who qualify and the Library offers institutional memberships to senior living facilities, rehabilitation centers and more that regularly have people who are eligible. Check them out here to learn more about their services!...

What to Do When You Qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.

Have you recently moved? Did you lose health coverage? If you have, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). An SEP allows you to make changes to your Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug coverage.

However, these life changes grant you the opportunity to choose a new program that can suit your needs accurately. The opportunity is great for people who feel like their current plan doesn't cover their health concerns or if they're dissatisfied with the insurance's customer service.
