RSVP will again be offering assistance to seniors in navigating the Medicare D Prescription Drug Benefit system. The only time to join a plan or easily make a change in coverage is this open enrollment period between Nov. 15 and Dec. 31.

Most seniors need to have a Medicare D plan, and should check each year to be sure that the plan they are on is the best one for them, because drug needs can change and because the providers can change costs and what drugs are covered.

There are 54 plans available in Colorado. Anyone needing help with Medicare D can call 384-8744 and leave a message. A trained volunteer will return their call and assist the senior in obtaining this benefit.

To order from SHARE’s November menu, please visit Eagles Lodge located on 312 Seventh St. in Glenwood Springs from 12-2 p.m. Nov. 3. Order pickup is from 11-12:30 p.m. Nov. 17.
