Have you reviewed your options for Medicare Part D? Do you understand how to navigate the Medicare website? Do you get confused just looking at all the information it gives you? You are in luck! We have trained volunteers here at the Extension office, and many locations throughout the county, ready to help you!
Open Enrollment has officially started and will last until December 7. All drug plans will then take effect January 1. Now some people think, “I do not need to review my options, I like my plan and I will stick with it.” What if I could tell you that by making an appointment and reviewing your options you might be able to save anywhere from $25 to $130 dollars or more! (All savings depend on what plan you were on, what plan you switch to and what medication you are taking. Everyone’s savings are different.)
Also, it is smart to review your drug plan because plans change from year to year and maybe this year the plan you are on doesn’t cover all your medication. If a plan doesn’t cover all your medication, then it will cost you more out of pocket.
Now that I have you convinced to set up an appointment here are the locations and numbers to contact them:
K-State Research and Extension – Harvey County Office 316-284-6930
Asbury Park 316-283-4770 EXT 1101

Don’t forget, December 7th is the last day you can change your Medicare Part D plan and all plans take effect on January 1. Hope to see you soon in the office reviewing your drug plans!
