To the editor:

Dan Crofoot wrote in a letter to the editor last Sunday that he is disappointed that his wife had to drop her Walgreens drug program when she turned 65.

His letter is a reminder that the Medicare open enrollment begins Oct. 15 and is an opportunity for Medicare beneficiaries to evaluate and change their prescription drug coverage. Beneficiaries may comparison shop at https://www.medicare.gov/find-a-plan/questions/home.aspx. Those who would rather not deal with the computer may get free help from a SHIBA (Senior Health Insurance Benefit Assistance) volunteer. Call the Mid-Columbia Senior Center at 541-296-4788 or the Mid-Columbia Council of Governments at 541-298-4101 for an appointment. It’s not only for seniors—some younger people have Medicare.
