Open enrollment to compare, enroll or to switch Medicare D plans is offered through Friday, Dec. 7, according to the Grundy County Health Department. This is especially important for those who lost their IL Cares Rx benefits on July 1, 2012.
IL Cares Rx worked with four different Medicare D plans in which three will carry a deductible beginning on Jan. 1, 2013. The maximum deductible for the year of 2013 is $325.
The Grundy County Health Department Senior Programs division will assist people in choosing the right Medicare D plan.
To schedule an appointment please call (815) 941-6811.
If you are homebound, someone from the Grundy County Health Department we will come to your home to assist you.
