Ridgefield Social Services and Library Provides Free Prescription Reviews for Medicare Beneficiaries

Medicare Open Enrollment for 2023

Ridgefield Social Services and their team of CHOICES Certified Medicare Counselors will again be offering free prescription coverage reviews to Ridgefield residents at the Ridgefield Library.

These free one-on-one appointments will provide a confidential review of your prescription drug coverage, an explanation of benefits, and general assistance to people with Medicare. Advisors will compare your current drug coverage with plans for 2023 ensuring that all your drugs are covered and that you are not paying more than necessary. Ridgefield Social Services and its team of Certified Counselors have saved Ridgefield residents approximately $780,000 in premiums and copays since the program’s inception in 2014.

Medicare prescription drug plans change their monthly premiums, drug coverage, and network providers every year. Registration open, October 15e – December 7e, is the only time you can change your prescription drug coverage for the upcoming year. The Center for Medicare Advocacy urges beneficiaries to “carefully weigh all of their Medicare coverage options each year,” Ridgefield Social Services is here to help.

Counseling sessions are available by appointment at the Library, by zoom or by phone if needed.
