The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services encourage Medicare beneficiaries to compare their Medicare coverage options each year. It is important to review options for 2012 since significant changes have been made to many of the Medicare prescription drug plans and Medicare Advantage plans. Open enrollment runs from Oct. 15-Dec. 7. Changes to Medicare Advantage plans and/or drug plans must be done during this time frame. 

The State Health Insurance Assistance Program will offer prescription drug plan comparison assistance for Medicare beneficiaries Tuesday, Oct. 25 at Carroll County Public Library, 136 Court Street. There is no cost to attend, but an appointment must be made at (502) 732-7020.

Participants should bring their red, white, and blue Medicare card along with a list of names and dosages of prescription medications they are currently taking.
