The deadline for the new Medicare Plan D drug plan is May 15th. For those looking to enroll, if you aren't signed up by the deadline, you will not be eligible again until 2007.
The plan is the first major change to Medicare or Medicaid since its inception in 1965.
According to Senior Insurance Assistance the average American can save about $1,100 by switching to the new plan.
Senior Insurance Assistance is on hand Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM to help assist those who are confused by the process.
They will help select the best plan for your situation and make sure it works with your pharmacy.
