March 31, 2006

Assemblyman Tom McKevitt (R,C,I – East Meadow) will be holding a meeting to teach seniors about the logistics of the Medicare drug plan. The supplemental prescription drug coverage is confusing to many, and McKevitt is teaming up with Medicare representatives to help inform the public about how the system works.

“Prescription drug coverage is vital to the health and well-being of many seniors,” said McKevitt. “Unfortunately, many people do not understand how Medicare Part D works. That is why I want to keep the public informed and ensure that they get the most out of this program.”

The seminar will be held at American Legion Post 144 on Willis Avenue in Williston Park. McKevitt, along with Medicare Today representatives, will be available from 10 AM to noon on Friday, April 21st.

In order to help fill out forms, participants should bring their Medicare ID number, effective date of their part A or B coverage, zip code and current drug coverage plan.

“We will be available to help seniors fill out their forms so that they can get their information in before the May 15th deadline,” stated McKevitt. “This is a great opportunity and I want everyone to take advantage of it. I understand why it has been perceived as a confusing program, and that is why I want to help end the confusion.”
