Still time to update Medicare Part D

Were you among the 530 Yuma County participants who saved a total of $351, 00.00 in prescription drug costs and insurance premiums during the 2019 Medicare Part D “drug” open enrollment season?

The SHIP (State Health Insurance Assistance Program) trained counselors worked hard to save you every dollar they could and they are ready once again!
Medicare Part D season is upon us! Enrollment opened October 15 and ends December 7. The N.E. Colorado Area Agency on Aging, SHIP, and the Yuma County Council on Aging would like to encourage all Medicare beneficiaries to check their plans for current medications and plan changes for 2020. Everyone needs to check their coverage to be sure there are no changes for 2021.
For appointment scheduling in Wray contact Wray Library at (970) 332-4744, and in Yuma contact the Yuma Library at (970) 848-2368. The counseling site in Wray is at the 55+ Club at 741 W 7th St. in. In Yuma, participants will go to the N.E. Colorado Area Agency on Aging office in the NJC building at 910 S. Main.
Once you have an appointment, please bring a detailed list of your medications, or better yet, your medication bottles and your Medicare card. Without these items we cannot complete your appointment. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we will be using precautions to keep everyone safe. As you enter for your appointment, you will be screened with temperature check and COVID symptom questions. We are also asking that you wear a mask and respect a social distance of 6 feet.
We would like to remind every Medicare beneficiary that time is running out, please make your appointment today.
We would like to thank our partners for helping provide this free service: Yuma County Council on Aging, Foltmer Drug in Wray, Shop All in Yuma, Yuma and Wray libraries, Smithfield, as well as the Yuma and Wray Lions Clubs. As you can see, it takes a village.
