Waycross, GA, Oct 11 - Congressman Jack Kingston (GA-1) announced today that he will sponsor a series of workshops during the open enrollment season for the Medicare Part D prescription drug program.  Counselors will be available at the event to speak with participants one-on-one to discuss their Medicare options.
Those who are enrolled or wish to enroll in the program must sign up or make changes during the open enrollment period which begins October 15th and ends December 7th.  The following workshop is scheduled for the Waycross area:
Waycross Part D Workshop
Thursday, October 18, 2012
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Waycross College
Education Building
2001 South Georgia Parkway
Waycross, GA

Anyone eligible for the program is encouraged to attend and bring with them their Medicare Card as well as a complete list of all prescriptions they are currently taking.  To expedite the process, participants are also encouraged complete and bring the ‘Medicare Part D Enrollment Event Worksheet’ that can be found at www.kingston.house.gov/PartD. Staff from Georgia Cares, a program of the Georgia Department of Human Resources and Division of Aging Services and Area Agencies on Aging, will also be on hand to answer questions.
“The cost and coverage of the Medicare prescription drug plan can change over time,” said Congressman Kingston.  “I encourage those people with Medicare to take this time to review those changes and make sure they still have the plan that best fits their needs or the needs of their loved one.  Adequate prescription drug coverage is very important to many older Americans and we want to make sure that all of their questions are answered.”
