Are YOU In A SPECIAL ENROLLMENT PERIOD

Are you in a Special Enrollment Period?

Special Enrollment Periods or (SEPS) are times when you can change or enroll on your Part D drug plan other than the open enrollment each year between November 15th and December 31st.

WE CAN HELP YOU during these times to get a cost comparison that will enable you to enroll on the drug plan that covers ALL your medications at the LOWEST co-pays. If you have been arbitrarily enrolled on a Part D Drug Plan because you were awarded “extra help” we can make sure the plan covers your drugs. Many times Medicare does not check the prescriptions you are taking before they enroll you on a plan for “exta help”. We will do that for you and change your plan so that ALL your meds are covered.
