Workshop dates are October 21, 28; November 4, 11, 18, 25 and December 2.
At the workshop you’ll be able to compare prescription drug coverage plans available for your individual needs. Participants will be provided with a print-out that compares their top three plans and instructions on how to enroll in the plan they choose. Be sure to bring your prescriptions with you, or a detailed list including dosages. Programs are held in the computer lab, but you do not need to know how to operate a computer. Library staff will be there to facilitate your individualized search!
