Oregon Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage Program

Before Medicare was enacted, senior citizens were faced between a choice of medical care and food. With the new Medicare prescription drug coverage plan, it is now possible to get insurance to pay for many prescription drugs. Many pharmacists and state workers have worked hard to educate senior citizens on this important benefit.

You can get one-on-one counseling by calling Oregon's Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors At 1-800-722-4134. By calling that number, you can make an appointment to speak with a network of volunteers who can answer any Medicare questions you have.

You can also compare plans with a special online program called: The Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder at: www.Medicare.gov.
