The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services encourage Medicare beneficiaries to compare their Medicare coverage options each year. It is very important to review your options for 2013 since significant changes have been made to many of the Medicare Prescription drug plans and Medicare Advantage plans. Open enrollment has changed this year. Open enrollment runs from October 15 through December 7, 2012. If you would like to change your Medicare Advantage plans and/or drug plans, it must be done during this time frame.
The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) is offering prescription drug plan comparison assistance for Medicare beneficiaries. The clinic in Pendleton County is being offered on Thursday, October 18th from 10am until 3pm at the Pendleton County Public Library at 228 Main St in Falmouth.

Please bring your red, white, and blue Medicare card with you to your appointment, along with a list of names and dosage amounts of prescription medications you are currently taking.
