It’s time to compare

Posted October 11, 2012 at 11:09 am

People with Medicare are given an opportunity each year between Oct. 15 and Dec. 7 to compare their current plan or change a Medicare prescription drug plan for the coming year.

On Tues, Oct. 23, from noon to 3 p.m., at the El Dorado Springs Senior Center we will have an enrollment event. Please schedule an appointment for this free event to find answers to your Medicare questions.

Learn how Medicare Part D works, compare plans and enroll with an unbiased expert, learn if you qualify for programs that can reduce drug prices to $2.50(generic) or $6.30 (brand-name) and other resources will be available.

You will need to bring with you: Your Medicare card, a list of your current medications, including the frequency and dosage and information regarding income and savings if applying for assistance.

To schedule an appointment with our counseling volunteer, Christina Veach, call the center at 417/876-5574.
