Medicare Part D Open Enrollment Starts October 15

It can cost you money not to review your Medicare Part D drug coverage annually. In just one hour, a Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) counselor at UnityPoint Health® - Grinnell Regional Medical Center (GRMC) can complete a review, let you know if you can save money and make sure you have access to the drugs you need.

SHIIP counselors in Iowa have been saving people money on Part D costs for 29 years. Last year they helped Iowans save more than $26 million.

Every year between October 15 and December 7 you can change your Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage plan. Don’t miss out on this opportunity. Let the SHIIP counselors at GRMC make sure your drugs are covered in the lowest cost plan for 2020.

SHIIP can help you:

  • Check your current Part D or Medicare Advantage plan to make sure your drugs are covered at the lowest cost and with the least amount of restrictions.
  • Review your employer drug coverage and compare to other Medicare options.
  • Check to see if you are eligible for Part D Extra Help.
  • Understand your options if you do not currently have a drug plan.
