The Nebraska Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) and Congressman Adrian Smith joined forces to present to local seniors various resources necessary in choosing the right Medicare program.

At the 4th annual Senior Fest Fair, community seniors were also provided information on social security benefits, blood pressure, assisted living and Medicare prescription drug plans.

Senior attendees visited the fair with lists of their current medications.  Volunteers then took their information and searched for plans they could switch to or if they were already on the most beneficial plan.

Medicare can be confusing and drug plans are confusing. I think its important for people to understand what benefits they have and what could happen to their benefits for the next year

Enrollment for next years plans started in October and continue through December 7th.
