The Louisiana Senior Rx/Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC), a free counseling service offered in coordination with the Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs, is encouraging all Medicare beneficiaries to update their Medicare prescription drug coverage plans before December 7, 2017.
“Your needs change as you age. Why shouldn’t your Medicare coverage change? Let us make sure you are enrolled in the right program that meets your care and prescription needs, and that you are getting all the benefits for which you are eligible,” said GOEA Program Manager Michelle Guillory.
Medicare enrollees should contact the Aging and Disability Resource Center in their area to get free money-saving advice and review the three best coverage plans for their needs. To make that possible, coordinators will need your Medicare card, proof of income, list of prescriptions with dosages, and a statement of what you spent on drugs during the last year, according to GOEA.
