Beginning October 15 and through December 7, 2019 you may change your current Medicare Part D Plan for prescription drugs or enroll in a Part D Plan for the first time. This enrollment will be effective January 1, 2020. You do not have to change your plan if you are satisfied with the one you have. However, you are encouraged to check every year to see if your plan is still the least expensive for your current prescription medications.
Mel Clauser, SHIP Counselor and Central Illinois Agency on Aging Volunteer (sponsored by Morton Public Library), will be available to assist you by appointment at the Morton Public Library on Wednesdays (9:30 a.m. –3 p.m.) during the enrollment period from October 15 through December 7, 2019. There is no charge for this service.
Please call the Morton Library at 263-2200 to make an appointment. Appointments may be arranged for other times if you cannot come on a Wednesday. Any changes to your Medicare Part D Plan should be completed by December 7 in order to make a smooth transition starting January 1, 2020.
Please bring your Medicare card and a list of all your prescription medications (including medication name, dosage and frequency taken) with you to your appointment.
A NEW FEATURE this year: If you have a MyMedicare account, where you can view your personal Medicare information online, please bring your MyMedicare account username and password to your session.
