For seniors who are still confused about which MediCare prescription drug plan they would like to use, Texas Tech is offering a lesson on Friday that will be personalized to your prescription needs. Texas Tech instructor John Gilliam has organized a student project to help senior citizens choose the right plan for them, using a helpful website.
"In Lubbock there are actually 48 different MediCare part D plans that are available to seniors and this website does an analysis of the different plans based on the medications you are taking. Some people may not take many medications, some people may take alot and that will depend on which plan is best for them," said John Gilliam with TTU-Personal Financial Planning.
So, if you still need help in making a decision on the MediCare prescription drug plan, the Texas Tech seminar is set for Friday moring at the Senior Citizen center at 19th and Avenue T across from Lubbock High School. It's free, but be sure to bring all the prescriptions you use because that will help in understanding which plan is better suited for you.
