Help with medicare enrollment begins today and runs through December 7th.
Everyone who is currently enrolled in a drug plan, and those who will be new to Medicare, should seek a drug plan comparison, says Mary Ann Holland, retired University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Educator and Trained SHIIP Professional. She will be conducting eight Medicare Part D drug plan comparison events in Cass County. “I have a special assignment with UNL Extension for Medicare education which allows me to continue serving Medicare beneficiaries.”she told the Cassgram.
Enrollment and plan comparison events will be held at the extension office on the Cass County Fairgrounds near Weeping Water this week on Thursday (10/17) and Friday (10/18). Other events at the extension office are October 30th, November 8, 12, and 22. The Plattsmouth Public Library will be the enrollment event site on October 29 and November 14. To make an appointment, call the Cass County Extension office at 402-267-2205.
