Have you reviewed your options for Medicare Part D? Do you understand how to navigate the Medicare website? Do you get confused just looking at all the information it gives you? You are in luck! We have trained volunteers here at the Extension Office, and many locations throughout the county, ready to help you!
Open Enrollment has officially started and will last until December 7th this year. All drug plans will then take effect January 1st. Now some people think, “I do not need to review my options, I like my plan and I will stick with it.” What if I could tell you that by making an appointment and reviewing your options you might be able to save anywhere from $25 to $130 dollars or more! (All savings depend on what plan you were on, what plan you switch to and what medication you are taking. Everyone’s savings are different.)
It is smart to review your drug plan because plans change from year to year and maybe this year the plan you are on doesn’t cover all your medication. If a plan doesn’t cover all your medication then it costs you more out of pocket.
Now that I have you convinced to set up an appointment here are the locations and contact numbers for each:
|K-State Research and Extension – Harvey County Office||316-284-6930|
|Asbury Park||316-283-4770 EXT 1101|
|Halstead Senior Center||316-835-2283 (call between 1PM-3PM)|
|HVCO Department on Aging||316-284-6880|
|Hesston Senior Center||620-327-5099|
|Newton Presbyterian Manor||316-281-4363|
|Trinity Heights United Methodist Church||316-283-6410|
Don’t forget, December 7th is the last day you can change your Medicare Part D plan and all plans take effect on January 1st. Hope to see you soon in the office reviewing your drug plans!
