SHIIP Counseling Available for Medicare Part D Open Enrollment

Every year between Oct 15-Dec 7, persons with Medicare Part D have the opportunity to review their drug plan during open enrollment. This review is a good check for 2019 cost and coverage.

Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) volunteer counselors will be available for free, confidential and unbiased Part D drug plan reviews on Thursday and Friday, November 1st and 2nd at Madison County Memorial Hospital. Call SHIIP at 515-962-5359 to schedule an appointment. Changes in coverage take effect January 1, 2019.

Alternate sites to make an appointment to see a volunteer counselor include the Indianola Activity Center (515-962-5375) and West Des Moines United Methodist Church (515-279-0826).

SHIIP is federally funded, organized under the State of Iowa Insurance Division and does not sell or endorse any insurance plan or products.
