Nebraska Extension in Cherry County
Welcome to Nebraska Extension in Cherry County
365 N. Main St., Suite 3 (red brick Courthouse at corner of 4th and Main St.)
Valentine, NE 69201
Medicare Part D Open Enrollment Event
October 15 through December 7 is the time for all Medicare Part D participants to evaluate their Part D plans for 2016 and make changes, if necessary. It is very important that every year the Part D plans are reviewed and compared. Many plans change their benefits and costs. Also, many times the prescriptions people take have changed in the last year.
Again this year, the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) volunteers and the University of Nebraska Extension Educators have teamed up to provide free, unbiased counseling information and enrollment for people who are receiving Medicare. Sue Pearman, Central Sandhills Area Extension Educator, will be holding an Open Enrollment Event in Valentine on October 19 at the Cherry County Extension Office from 10:00 AM CT to 4:00 PM CT. Please call the CSA Extension Office at 1-800-657-2113 to set a time for your appointment.
Sue will also be hosting Open Enrollment Events in other area communities. Please call the CSA Extension Office for more information on those locations and dates.
