The Senior Health Insurance Counseling for Kansas program at Douglas County Senior Services is offering enrollment assistance regarding Medicare’s prescription drug plans.
Trained volunteers are available from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Dec. 29, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Dec. 10, and from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday at the Lawrence Senior Center, 745 Vt.
Assistance is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Seniors need to bring their Medicare card and a list of their prescriptions. They also should bring an income statement because they could be eligible for additional financial help.
