Senior Services offers Medicare reviews

October 20, 2008


Douglas County Senior Services will have an information session about Medicare, the government's health insurance program for people 65 years and older.

The session will be from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Lawrence Senior Center, 745 Vt. Refreshments will be provided.

Medicare's annual enrollment period is Nov. 15-Dec. 31.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advises all people with Medicare to review the changes being made to their current health and/or prescription drug plan and compare it with others to make sure it meets their needs. Those who do not have prescription drug coverage also can enroll in a drug plan during this annual enrollment period. Any changes or enrollments made will become effective Jan. 1.
