Medicare Part D and Health Plan changes will impact some of the people on Medicare so Lyle Hoxtell, Otter Tail County Coordinator on Aging, will be available to work with people with questions and needing drug plan changes or health plan changes at the following events scheduled throughout Otter Tail County.


He will do a short presentation before the noon meal when at the Senior Nutrition sites and be available for individual consultation the rest of the scheduled time.

Please bring your Medicare Health and Drug plan information as well as a list of medications with name, dosage and how often taken. Lyle will do comparisons of the 2010 plans and get them back to you for discussion about any enrollment changes you want to make.

If someone is also on Medical Assistance there may be a need to change plans also, unless automatically changed by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Also you can call the Senior Linkage Line at 1-800-333-2433 or Lyle at 218-998-8340.
