Help is out there for choosing a new Medicare Part D plan

Open season for Medicare Part D has started (November 15).   Medicare beneficiaries may need to choose a new Medicare prescription drug plan before December 31, 2009 to avoid cost increases or changes to their drug coverage that could happen beginning in January 2010.

The Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia and the Whitman-Walker Clinic Legal Program have scheduled free walk-in clinics to help Medicare beneficiaries evaluate their current drug plans, and help them enroll in a new plan for 2010 if necessary.   Learn more about the Whitman-Walker open enrollment clinics here and the Legal Aid open enrollment clinic here.   Note that help from Whitman-Walker is available in Ward 1.
