Open enrollment for Medicare Drug Plans ends December 7th.
The Down East Library has arranged with Beth Simpson, Director of the Leon Mann Center to offer Medicare Drug Plan Counseling appointments at the Down East Public Library on two consecutive Mondays, November 19 and November 26 from 1:00 to 5:00 both days.
Please let your friends and neighbors know of this opportunity as they will otherwise need to go to the Leon Mann Center to get this assistance. It is critical for people to choose the correct plan. The Southern Maine Agency on Aging tracked the savings of the 5,000 people helped by volunteer counselors. Every year people saved around $4,000 a year!)
Please help spread the word. People must call the Library at 728-1333 to reserve a 30-minute appointment. They need to bring their Medicare card and either a list of their current prescription medicines with dosages and frequencies or a bag with their pill bottles.
