Township Offers Help with Medicare Part D Open Enrollment

 

 

Senior citizens and individuals with disabilities seeking assistance with enrollment in their Medicare Part D prescription plan can schedule an appointment through the Oak Park Township Senior Services’ Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP).  The enrollment period begins on October 15th and is open until December 7th, 2017.  This time period is an opportunity to make changes to a current Part D or Medicare Advantage prescription plan.

 

Beneficiaries in the Medicare program can call (708) 383-8060 to make an appointment with a SHIP Counselor to review their existing coverage and select a drug plan that meets their individual needs.  Please bring a copy of the Medicare card as well as a list of prescriptions including the monthly quantity and dosage. 

 

During the enrollment period, Medicare recipients can:

  • Change from original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan
  • Change from a Medicare Advantage plan to original Medicare
  • Join, drop or switch Medicare Part D drug plans, or
  • Switch Medicare Advantage plans

The Illinois Department on Aging also assists Medicare-eligible senior citizens and their caregivers with free counseling assistance through the Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP).  Please visit their website at https://www.illinois.gov/aging/ship/Pages/default.aspx or call 800-252-8966.  The official US Government website for Medicare is https://www.medicare.gov/.
