Don't wait to the last minute to get in and see your local outreach worker of the Medicare Part D open enrollment period.
That's the message from Executive Director of the DeWitt County Friendship Center, Sissy Leggett, who says every senior should be in tune that now is the open enrollment time and there's still plenty of time to stop in get help.
Leggett says this time of year especially, but all year, seniors need to guard their personal information. You're likely to get bombarded with scam calls from every which direction, so hold on to that information very closely.
Leggett points because of identity theft from stolen numbers, Medicare is making a change. They are removing social security numbers from medicare cards and replacing them with a specific number for each customer. She says that new card will be mailed out between April of 2018 and April of 2019.
