State Counselors are available to help seniors navigate the current Medicare enrollment period. Sandy Leith runs the state’s senior health insurance program, and urges Illinoisans to take advantage of the free advice. For example she says counselors will discuss your prescription medication needs, whether generic brands can be substituted and where you want to pick up your meds.
The Medicare enrollment period runs thru December 7th. Visit www.illinois.gov/aging or call 1-800-252-8966.
