Oct 22, 2012 -
On Monday, October 29th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in Plano, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) will host a free information session on Medicare for seniors that is open to the public. There will also be flu shots available for $25, unless covered by Original Medicare or Railroad Retirement Medicare, while supplies last. Individuals can pay with cash or check.
Held in conjunction with the North Central Texas Area Agency on Aging (NCTAA) and the Wellness Center for Older Adults (formerly the Geriatric Wellness Center of Collin County), the seminar will provide an overview of the 2013 Medicare program. The event coincides with the annual enrollment period of the Medicare Prescription Drug Program, which runs between October 15 and December 7. During this annual enrollment period, seniors may switch their current Part D prescription plan to another plan if they so choose.
Benefits counselors with the NCTAA will be on hand to discuss the 2013 Medicare program and the annual enrollment period. These experts will be on hand to answer general questions regarding the process.
The NCTAA can take down individual’s information in order to complete drug comparison plans in their office and then mail the information to the client. For questions regarding services provided by the NCTAA, please call Mary Jane Douglas at 1-800-272-3921, ext. 7166.
