Tuesday, 16 October 2012 14:00Help available for Medicare part D
Nancy Pihl, Kansas State Extension agent and counselor with Senior Health Insurance Counseling, is offering help for those in a Medicare part D plan for 2013.
A current Medicare prescription drug plan (part D) might have worked this year, but might not be the best plan in 2013. Insurance companies can and do make changes to premiums, deductibles and co-payments every year.
To schedule an appointment for reviewing and enrolling eligible recipients in a Medicare part D plan for 2013 call, 620-382-2325.
Pihl said she encourages those wanting assistance to bring their Medicare card and a list of current medications, dosage and times taken per day.
