Local Experts to Advise Medicare Part D Enrollees

Medicare Access-Network-of-Kansas

Medicare Part D is a federal program that provides prescription drug benefits to senior citizens. The paperwork and requirements that go along with it are often difficult for some seniors to navigate. Now, a health care group is working with local experts to help prepare Kansas seniors for the program's open enrollment opportunity, which begins in October. Heidi Frederickson is with the Kansas Medicare R-X Access Network. She says their advisors are about to face their busiest time of the year.

More than 435,000 Kansans are currently covered by Medicare. Advisors are urging Kansas senior citizens to start preparing now, while there are still a few weeks left for seniors to make changes to their prescription drug benefits.
