Event Description:

Medicare Part D Open Enrollment Coming

It can cost you money not to review your Medicare Part D drug coverage annually. In just one hour, a SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program) counselor can complete a review, 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 money on Part D costs for 28 years. Last year they helped Iowans save more than $26 million.

Every year between October 15 and December 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 2019. 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.

Call the UnityPoint Health – Grinnell Regional Medical Center’s SHIIP counselors at 641-236-2588 to schedule your appointment! Leave a message and the coordinator will call you to set an appointment. Counselors will see clients in Grinnell throughout the open enrollment period as well as in Brooklyn on November 1, Montezuma on November 14 and in Tama on October 25. Please indicate your location when you leave a message on the SHIIP scheduling phone line.  

   You will be able to enroll in or change your Part D plan for 2019 from October 15 through December 7, 2018.
