Class registration at senior centers

Registration for fall classes offered at the county senior centers through Anne Arundel Community College has begun.

A list of classes is available at each center's reception desk. Classes begin next week.

Center membership is required. Sign-up is available by phone or the Star Registration System at all of the centers except the South County Senior Center.

For students age 60 and older, the administrative fee is $40. For those age 55 to 59, the cost is $40 per class plus the administrative fee.

Savings available on prescriptions

Anne Arundel County residents can get significant savings on prescription medications through the Department of Health's Prescription Discount Program.

Program participants can receive a discount card that offers an average discount of 25 percent. County residents enrolled in Medicare Part D can use the card for savings on prescriptions that are not covered by their Medicare Part D program.

The card also could provide discounts on routine vision and hearing care, which is not covered by Medicare.

This discount program, which is not insurance, has no enrollment cost or monthly fees.

Information: 410-222-4464 or www.aahealth.org, or call the Senior Health Insurance Program.
