Congressman Stephen F. Lynch will host an informational forum on the open enrollment period for Medicare prescription drug coverage on Monday, December 20th at the Walpole Senior Center located at 135 School Street in Walpole.  Representatives from Social Security Administration (SSA), Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders (SHINE) will be available to answer questions and assist with the open enrollment period, which runs from November 15th – December 31st.  Some new changes in Medicare Part D for 2011 make this year’s open enrollment period particularly important.  Those who are covered by Medicare or provide care for an individual on Medicare are encouraged to attend and, if possible, bring a list of their prescribed drugs.
