Medicare program at F.C. Senior Center Sept. 20

Posted on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 3:02 pm

SHIP/SMP, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program provides free unbiased information to people on Medicare and their families. Part of that help is screening people to see if they qualify for the “extra help” program with their prescription drug costs.

Call toll free at 1-877-801-0044 to request a brochure or to be screened.  A SHIP certified counselor will present a program on the importance of doing a 2018 Part D Insurance Plan Comparison and other Medicare information at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center on Wednesday, September 20th at 10:00.

Appointments will be made for the open enrollment period at that time.  The counselor will be available to answer questions following the program.  For more information call the Local SHIP/SMP office   931-379-2927 or your local senior center.
