Also, even if you are registered, you can still attend any other practice at any time, especially if we are closed.
To be eligible for registration, you must have had 2 in-person visits at our practice sometime in the last 2 years.

- Respond to an online invitation we will send you via the Medicare app or website
More information is available on the MyMedicare website.
