Senior Health Information and Education (SHIINE) will host a Medicare Part D open enrollment event at the Madison Public Library on Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is a walk-in event -- first come, first served.
Attendees must bring their medication or a list of them.
Appointments for help at other times can be made by calling 256-7603.
Trained SHIINE volunteers will be on hand to assist individuals with enrollment, answer questions and help fill out paperwork. The annual open enrollment period for Part D begins Tuesday and ends Dec. 7.
Administered by the South Dakota Department of Social Services, SHIINE is a federally-funded program that advocates for, educates and assists consumers with Medicare and related health information to allow consumers to make timely and informed decisions and access necessary resources.
