The Lapham Center Winter Newsletter has been mailed and registration for all activities occurring in December through February is going on now.

Newsletters are also available at the Center and online at laphamcenter.org
Appointments are continuing to be made now at Lapham Center for assistance in choosing a Part D Prescription Drug Plan for 2015. Trained Medicare counselors will run Medicare's Prescription Drug Plan Finder located at Medicare.gov
on the Internet. This process generally takes less than an hour and there is no fee.
Anyone who has a Prescription Drug Plan needs to carefully check all the changes made by the drug company as well as any changes in their prescription medicines to make sure all medicines are covered. It is a complicated process which is made far easier with the help of trained counselors.
As of November 5, Medicare counselors at Lapham have seen 219 New Canaan residents. Over 50% of those people changed their prescription drug plan for 2015 saving an average of $916. The cumulative savings were over $103,000.
If the decision is made to change a drug plan, the counselors will help enroll in the new plan. Call 203-594-3620
now to schedule an appointment.
