The Medicare Prescription Drug coverage annual election period provides current Medicare beneficiaries with one opportunity each year (between October 15 and December 7) to select a new drug plan. (This does not apply to people New to Medicare or those with Extra Help paying for their prescriptions. They have different options.)
If you did not sign up for a drug plan or if your plan doesn't cover all the medicines you are currently taking, you now have the opportunity to enroll in a new or different plan.
Our *SHIIP counselors have the ability to complete prescription drug plan comparisons to ensure you are enrolled in the plan that best meets your needs. Please come by the Senior Center 9:00-5:00 Monday-Friday to complete the drug plan form. Once we have completed your comparison, a counselor will contact you to discuss your options.
If you are interested in doing your own prescription drug plan comparison, you may go to www.medicare.gov to access the Medicare Plan Finder tool by clicking on "Find Health and Drug Plans".
