It can cost substantial money not to review your Medicare Part D drug coverage annually. In just one hour, a Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) counselor at Loring Hospital can complete a review and let you know if you can save money and ensure you have access to the drugs you need. SHIIP counselors in Iowa have been saving people money on Medicare costs for 29 years. In fact, last year they helped Iowans save more than $32 million.

Every year between Oct. 15 and Dec. 7, individuals can change their Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage plan. The SHIIP counselors at Loring Hospital encourage you not to miss out on this opportunity. Let us make sure your drugs are covered on the lowest cost plan for 2020.

SHIIP is a free, confidential service of the State of Iowa Insurance Division. Specifically, SHIIP can help you:

  • Check your current Part D or Medicare Advantage plan to make sure your drugs are covered at the lowest cost and with the least amount of restrictions.
  • Review your employer drug coverage and compare other Medicare options.
  • Check to see if you are eligible for Part D Extra Help.
  • Understand your options if you do not currently have a drug plan.

Please call one of us, your SHIIP Counselors at Loring Hospital, at 712-662-7105 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to helping you enroll in or change your Part D plan for 2020 from now through Dec. 7.
