Medicare Part D lab

    Special to The PREVIEW
    If you are eligible for Medicare October through January and want to sign up, or are already on Medicare and want to change your Part D prescription drug plan, you are invited to attend a hands-on Medicare Part D Lab on Nov. 1 from noon to 3 p.m. in the Ruby Sisson Library.
    Two State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) volunteers from Pagosa Springs will assist participants with basic instruction on online enrollment with opportunities to ask questions. You must bring your own computers and, depending on battery life and preferences, a power cord and mouse. Your Medicare card information or Social Security number and prescriptions will be needed in order to choose the best Part D plan.
    Advance sign-up is required by calling the San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging at 264-0501, ext. 1.
    This is a general Part D session for the Open Enrollment period, Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. For more specific help, please schedule an individual session with a SHIP counselor at the Senior Center at the number above.
