Medicare Part D Consultation

FREE Medicare Part D Consultation

Tuesday, November 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Computer Club, Anthem Center.

Take Advantage of this free offer for a one-on-one consultation with Medicare Part D counselor from the Nevada State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP).

All consultations will be by appointment only in 30-minute increments.

Nevada residents have approximately 23 different Part D plans from which to choose. Signups are voluntary, but if you are eligible and do not sign up within the eligibility window, you may be faced with a penalty if you choose to sign up later. Open enrollment ends December 7. Note that HMO members are not eligible for a separate Part D program without consulting their HMO first.

Part D plans change their formularies every year, so it’s important for participants to ascertain whether their current plan is still the best plan for their needs. The program that worked for you in 2018 may not work for you in 2019. For those of you already participating in a plan, it is important to check each year whether your current plan is still the best one for you.

Medicare Part D counselors will be available to meet with residents on Tuesday, November 13. If you choose, they will be able to enroll you in a plan. There is no cost for this service.

If you wish to meet with a counselor, send an email to nrosenfeld@cox.net with “Medicare” in the subject line.

In the body of your message, please list your name, your phone number, your SCA member I.D. number, and your first and second choices for appointments times (or “any time”). You must submit your appointment request by Thursday, November 8. You will receive an appointment confirmation email by Friday, November 9.

Please bring your Medicare card and a list of all of the medications that you are taking with dosages to your November 13 meeting.
