Prescription Drug Enrollment Now Underway

Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Open Enrollment begins October 15 and runs through December 7.
Drug plans may change premiums, deductibles, the medications they cover and their cost every year.
Plans are required to notify their beneficiaries of these changes, and all seniors should have received their annual notice of change (ANOC) from their plans recently.
Elgin Housing Authority/The Homestead is again offering free, unbiased and confidential counseling on Medicare drug plans, as well as other Medicare issues, to area seniors.
Connie Dvorak is a SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program) counselor and receives training through the Nebraska Department of Insurance and Northeast Nebraska Area Agency on Aging. For an appointment call Connie Dvorak at (402) 843-2280.
