Medicare Part D open enrollment coming

It can cost you money not to review your Medicare Part D drug coverage annually. In one hour, a SHIIP counselor can complete a review and let you know if you can save money and make sure you have access to the drugs you need. SHIIP counselors in Iowa have been saving people on Medicare costs for 29 years. In fact, last year they helped Iowans save more than $32 million. 

Every year between Oct. 15 and Dec. 7, you can change your Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage plan. Don’t miss out on this opportunity. Let SHIIP counselors make sure your drugs are covered in the lowest cost plan for 2020. Don’t wait. Call today to schedule your appointment. 

SHIIP can help you: 

• Check your current Part D or Medicare Advantage plan to make sure your drugs are covered at the lowest cost and with the least amount of restrictions 

• Review your employer drug coverage and compare to other Medicare options 

• Check to see if you are eligible for Part D Extra Help 

• Understand your options if you do not currently have a drug plan 

SHIIP is a free, confidential service of the State of Iowa Insurance Division. SHIIP counselors are available across the state to help answer your Medicare questions. 

Also, please note that this time of year is heavy in phone scams. You will never receive a call from SHIIP asking for your social security number directly. Do not give out private information over the phone. 

Call the Jones County Volunteer Center to set up your appointment at 319-739-4211. 

You will be able to enroll in or change your Part D plan for 2020 from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, 2019.
