WAYNE – Just about a month after Providence Medical Center went through their Medicare Part D Open Enrollment period, statistics are now being announced.
In a press release from PMC in Wayne, the SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program) volunteers worked together in helping the community with their Medicare Part D drug plan comparisons.
The open enrollment period lasted from October 15 through December 7, 2017. According to PMC Social Service Director, Leslie Schulz, PMC, “had a total of 154 contacts that were made…. approximately $53,000 was saved to the Medicare recipients that we helped.”
There were also three full days just for the public at the Wayne Senior Center along with a morning at Brookdale to assist residents at their facility. These volunteers included Kiley Wohlers and Schulz, Social Service Workers at Providence Medical Center; Scot Surber, Licensed Pharmacist at PMC and Jodene Cantrell, Social Worker at Wayne’s CareAge Campus of Care.
Schulz would like to encourage Medicare recipients to review their plans yearly during open enrollment. She added, “our team of volunteers looks forward to assisting with our community’s Medicare Part D drug plan comparison needs again next year.”
