Sherri Craig with the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) will provide information on what changes could be made in the Medicare Part D (prescription drug benefit) and Medicare Advantage (supplemental) plans in 2024. The seminar will also address the importance of performing an annual plan comparison and changes in Medicare costs.
