Seminar Answers Questions About Medicare

New changes in the Medicare program can be hard to understand. That's why dozens of folks attended a Medicare seminar Tuesday in Lufkin.

There are dozens of programs seniors can enroll in. Some can be confusing.

Danny Rich, Brookshire Brothers pharmacist, said, "They have an opportunity to enroll in these Medicare plans until May 31st and we want to get as many people enrolled into the plans; actually, we're not doing the enrolling, but we are just leading them to the direction of who to talk to."

Many people are expected to start enrolling in the program on January 1st. About 200 people showed up for Tuesday's seminar. Another workshop is planned for next week in the Nacogdoches area.
