Medicare Bus Stops in Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - The Medicare Bus, that travels around the country helping people enroll in Medicare Part D, made a stop in Pasco and Ellensburg Tuesday.

Enrollment for Medicare Part D, which provides coverage for prescription drugs, starts November 15th and ends December 31st. 

Tuesday, different agencies were on hand to help answer questions, show people how to get prescriptions paid for, and talk about medicare's new covered services.   

Some Medicare recipients said they really need the extra help. 

"There's so much paperwork and correspondence and stuff that comes with this, you have to sit down with someone that knows what they're doing in order to figure out what's going on," said Stan Cottrell, Medicare recipient.   

If you missed the bus, you can still get help signing up for Medicare Part D.
