Open enrollment for Medicare Part D drug coverage ends December 31st. In Hawaii, over 40 plans will be offered. Some plans from 2008 will be discontinued and many will be changing costs and coverage. Seniors who currently have a Part D plan should check if their coverage will change next year. Those who need to change plans can call 1-800-Medicare or Sage PLUS at 586-7299 for assistance.
The City and County Elderly Affairs Division will be assisting Sage PLUS by providing staff at various locations in Windward Oahu. Staff can help narrow down which plans are most appropriate for individuals by evaluating current medications and coverage. For locations and appointments call the Senior Helpline at 768-7700.
Media contact: Karen Miyake, County Executive on Aging, 768-7708.
