Lake Regional Health System will offer several opportunities for Medicare Part D enrollment assistance this fall.
Medicare Part D enrollment events are scheduled 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, and Thursday, Nov. 29, in the hospital’s third floor conference rooms.
During the events, Jim Day, an expert from CLAIM, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program, will assist Medicare beneficiaries with Part D enrollment.
“If you or a loved one needs help enrolling, this is an excellent opportunity to get unbiased advice,” Day said. “At the very least, we encourage Medicare beneficiaries to make sure they are aware of available plans.”
For more information or to schedule an appointment, call CLAIM at 800-390-3330. Walk-ins also are welcome.
Medicare Part D enrollment assistance also will be available at Lake Regional pharmacies. Dates include Tuesday, Oct. 23, at Lake Regional Pharmacy – Camdenton; Wednesday, Oct. 30, at Lake Regional Pharmacy – Osage Beach; and Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Lake Regional Pharmacy – Lake Ozark. Appointments will be offered at each pharmacy from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., but walk-ins also are welcome.
Participants should bring their medication lists and Medicare cards with them.
The Medicare Prescription Drug Program, also known as Medicare Part D, provides drug insurance coverage for many Missourians who are 65 and older or disabled.
