Medicare offers prescription drug insurance to Medicare participants. The drug program is called Medicare Part D.
You can get information about drug plan choices and enrollment assistance.
Local Information and Enrollment Sites
Medicare Part D Enrollment sites are available to assist seniors age 65 and older with their prescription drug questions and with signing up for a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. Enrollment assistance is also provided if you have a disability and are enrolled in Medicare.
Enrollment sites can assist you if you are having problems with the drug plan you selected. They will also help if you have just become eligible for Medicare or will become eligible for Medicare soon.
Telephone and in-person counseling is available. Most offices require an appointment for in-person assistance.
