FAIRBURY – Free assistance is available for those who need help in changing or reconsidering their Medicare D or Medicare Advantage Plan. Medicare Open Enrollment is available from through Dec. 7.
Appointments are required, and can be made by calling Lori DeBoer at Jefferson Community Health Center at (402) 729-3351. DeBoer works in the JCHC business office and is volunteer with the Senior Health Insurance Information program. The number of appointments is limited, so please call early to get an appointment.
Those coming for an appointment should bring their Medicare card, and a list of the medications they take, including doses and times medication is taken.
“It’s important to take the time every year to look at your drug plan,” DeBoer said. “Even though your meds haven’t changed, your drug plan may have changed.”More
