Help available

November 28, 2008


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.

For more information, contact Douglas County Senior Services at 842-0543.

Seniors can compare plans or enroll in one by visiting The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Web site at or calling (800)633-4227. Seniors also can call the SHICK program at (800) 860-5260.
