Paducah, KY – Open Enrollment for Medicare Part-D prescription coverage begins in October, and ADiO/Four Rivers Pharmacy is helping its customers with their decisions.

According to the medicare.gov website, “Each year, you have a chance to make changes to your Medicare Advantage or Medicare prescription drug coverage for the following year.  This year’s open enrollment dates are October 7 through December 7, 2013.”

Each year, ADiO helps its customers decide which coverage is right for them.

“It can be a complicated procedure to enter the data and navigate through the different options,” said ADiO Customer Service Director Ralph Prince, “our service helps people calculate the specifics of their coverage based on their individual needs.”

During the open enrollment period, Medicare Part D subscribers may:

 

  • Change from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage Plan.
  • Change from a Medicare Advantage Plan back to Original Medicare.
  • Switch from one Medicare Advantage Plan to another Medicare Advantage Plan.
  • Switch from a Medicare Advantage Plan that doesn’t offer drug coverage to a Medicare Advantage Plan that offers drug coverage.
  • Switch from a Medicare Advantage Plan that offers drug coverage to a Medicare Advantage Plan that doesn’t offer drug coverage.
  • Join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.
  • Switch from one Medicare drug plan to another Medicare drug plan.
  • Drop Medicare prescription drug coverage completely.

 

Changes can only be made during the dates of the open enrollment period.  ADiO recommends two sources of online information.   Both sources are helpful to read before making a decision on coverage.

Please note that complete information for Med-D 2014 coverage has not been released as of today, but will be soon.  The first site is the official government website for all aspects of Medicare.  The second site is a private company that offers basic information on Med-D and calculators to help you input your own information.  ADiO/Four Rivers customers are invited to contact their customer service representative, or the pharmacy if they need assistance with their prescription information, their current coverage, or calculating their options for different coverage.  You may also schedule an appointment by email at info2003@adiopharmacy.com .

ADiO/Four Rivers Pharmacy offers prescription fulfillment and delivery to customers throughout Kentucky.  Our local offices are typically in partnership with Community Mental Health Centers and other Long Term Care facilities.
