Medicare Part D update explained

Michael Soule of the Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Services Board is coming to the library early in November to explain important new Medicare Part D features.
There are more Medicare choices than ever before, so it’s important that you look at your coverage every year.
Plan costs and benefits change, and so might your health concerns. The coverage that worked for you this year may still meet your needs in 2008 or, there might be a better option.
While you can read the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services handbook (120 pages long!), you may find it helpful to attend Mr. Soule's free program to help clarify information.
Two resources in the library's collection that are also worth taking a look at: Medicare & You: For Virginia Residents, brought to you by the Dept. of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and Virginia Medicare Supplement Insurance Premium Comparison Guide prepared by Commonwealth of Virginia State Corporation Commission Bureau of Insurance.
