May 15 is the deadline to sign up for a Medicare prescription drug coverage plan. With 44 options, choosing the right drug plan can be very overwhelming.
Bethel Missionary Baptist Church members took the time to help senior citizens, along with help from a much anticipated guest, Mike Leavitt, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.
It’s been more than a year since the national Medicare tour began with Levitt visiting more than 200 cities, helping millions sign up. Leavitt says the average person saves about $1,100, with others saving thousands more. His next stop will be Sarasota.
If you have Medicare and are on a limited income, you can quality for prescription drugs, so make sure to ask about the extra help when you call 1-800-MEDICARE.
