Fremont Township offers a free service to Fremont Township residents to help sign up for Medicare and Medicare Part D. Each year you should be evaluating which prescription plan best suits your needs based on the medications you are on.
This is our third year in this program and we have found that many people never evaluate their prescription drug care plan. You should be looking at this every year. Our counselor helped save residents over $80,000 last year. Our residents have found comfort in having help to make sure they are in the right program.
Medicare's Open Enrollment period begins October 15 and ends December 7. Changes made to your Prescription Drug plan will take effect on January 1, 2022.
If you would like to make an appointment with the Ship Counselor, please call Nancy at 847 223-2847. The appointments will start on October 15 and go through December 6.
You will need to have an online account with Medicare and a list of your current prescriptions before making an appointment, as you will need them when you speak with the Ship Counselor.
If you need help creating on-line access, let Nancy know when you call.
If you are turning 65 and need help signing up for Medicare, the counselor can also help you with that.
