Seniors are now eligible for new prescription drug benefits. Enrollment for the new Medicare plan started Tuesday.
The coverage is voluntarily, but the government expects as many as 29 million people will sign up. Monday, hundreds of seniors got their questions answered here in Lubbock by Congressman Randy Neugebauer during a Medicare workshop.
If you missed the workshop, there's another one Wednesday. Humana will register seniors for the plan and answer questions Wednesday from 8am -3pm. You just need to bring your ID and proof of Medicare coverage to the Lubbock Senior Center, 2001 19th Street.
If you prefer to get help over the phone, you can call Medicare at 1-800-633-4227.
