Medicare Part D Assistance, October 17 – December 06, 2019 at the Fearrington Cares Center. During open enrollment, Fearrington Cares assists individuals in evaluating their options for the Medicare Part D drug program. We are thankful to resident SHIIP (Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program) volunteers who will strive to help villagers save money with their choice of a drug plan. A session takes about 30 minutes. (Couples should schedule two consecutive sessions or separate half-hour times.) Bring your Medicare card, list of medications and any other insurance information. (If you were counseled last year and still have the printout you received then, please bring it with you). Call the Center (919-542-6877) to reserve your session or for more information.
