Year-round, a cadre of vetted and trained volunteer counselors assist clients with applying for Medicare and provide information to help them evaluate options for additional insurance. In addition, we also screen clients for eligibility for Medicaid and other financial assistance for medical and prescription drug costs and report Medicare Fraud and Abuse.
The Medicare Open Enrollment period runs from October 15 through December 7 and allows those with existing Medicare plans to make changes in their supplemental insurance, prescription drug plans, or advantage plans if they so desire.

Brainteaser Challenge
Let's keep our minds challenged and active!

Here's a challenging Brainteaser, Spazey Spoonerisms, submitted to Braingle.com by cnmne. 
 
A spoonerism is a pair of words that can have their initial sounds switched to form new words. The pairs need only sound the same, not necessarily be spelled the same (power saw & sour paw, horse cart & coarse heart). There may sometimes be one or two connecting words (kick the stone & stick the cone, king of the rats & ring of the cats). Given the following definitions, what are the spoonerisms?
  1. punched when starting work & discussion about scaling a mountain
  2. a container of fibs & a shortage of baked goods
  3. hasty vacation & prank gibe
  4. a mongoose & artificial precipitation

Share your answer with Nancy O'Pry Gentry, Special Projects Coordinator at Nancy.Gentry@talgov.com
The first three people to answer correctly will get a "shout out" during the next
