Medicare Part D help available

Anne Arundel County has opened a Medicare Part D Assistance Center to help residents learn about their prescription options.

The Department of Aging's Senior Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) counselors will provide free, confidential and personalized assistance to seniors, disabled people and their families as they sort through the Medicare prescription plan options available for 2008.

The center, in the Department of Aging and Disabilities building at 2666 Riva Road, Annapolis, is open Monday through Friday with appointments beginning at 9 a.m. and the last appointment at 3 p.m.

Appointments can be made by calling 410-222-4464, ext. 3080. Van transportation is available for clients who do not drive by calling 410-222-4826. Limited appointments are also available at each senior center.

The center will remain open through Dec. 31, the deadline for submitting applications for Medicare Part D.
