Walgreens Offers Help Sorting Through Changes to Medicare Part D Plans : Free personalized report available at every Walgreens makes it easier for seniors to identify their best choices for prescription coverage
Date:11/19/2008

The six-week open enrollment period for Medicare Part D is under way and seniors are facing the annual task of evaluating prescription plans to nail down their choices for the coming year. Medicare enrollees have until Dec. 31 to review their current plan for any changes in cost or coverage and make certain it still meets their needs.
