Senior citizens receiving Medicare benefits have until Dec. 7 to choose or change a prescription drug plan under Medicare Part D. Representatives from the Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging will visit the Wilton Senior Center on Thursday, Nov. 7, to go over options with seniors in one-on-one appointments. The agency is not affiliated with any insurance company and representatives will not be selling anything.
A spokesperson for the Agency on Aging said there are some changes for the coming year, which begins on Jan. 1, 2014. Some plans are not being offered and there are some new companies as well. People on Medicare have many options she said, including traditional Medicare and Medicare Advantage.
