It's Time to Sign Up For Medicare, Part D


Enrollment for Medicare's prescription drug program began yesterday, and lasts through the end of the year. And seniors facing a barrage of complex choices will get a helping hand today in St. Petersburg.

Tropicana Field, which usually hosts the Devil Rays, will be filled with representatives from companies to help seniors who may be bedeviled by their choices.

U. S. Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt will arrive at the Senior Friendly Extravaganza at 10:30 a.m. He'll be joined by representatives from 250 exhibitors. There will also be people on hand from the Area Agency on Aging Senior Helpline and Florida Department of Elder Affairs.

Sign-up runs through Dec. 31st, with coverage beginning on New Year's Day.
