The Plato Special Events Lectures Subcommittee is sponsoring two programs for those planning to sign up for Medicare including Prescription Drug Coverage.  Since Medicare‚Äôs Open Enrollment Period is October 15 through December 7, these programs will also help current participants decide if they should change their health plans and prescription drug coverage for the coming year to better meet their needs.

Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D)

Presenter:  Gail Wickman

Medicare Part D is an optional program that provides assistance for Medicare beneficiaries to pay for outpatient prescription drug costs. Participants should review their drug coverage during every annual Open Enrollment Period to make sure they still have the best plan for their prescription drug needs.  The state of Wisconsin found in a 2014 study that the average savings gained by reviewing and changing to the lowest cost plan was just under $1,000 per participant.  

Presenter  Gail Wickman is a Medigap Helpline Insurance Counselors who is trained and licensed by the Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance.  She will not endorse any company or product, but will help the consumer understand the various options so they can make the best decision for their individual needs. 

Materials will be provided to the first 75 participants.  If you have any questions, contact JoAnn Savoy at or 838-9587.
