Bankers Says Seniors Should Prepare Now for 2006 Changes to Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage

Chicago, Ill., August 1, 2005 -- When the government implements important changes in Medicare with the introduction of outpatient prescription drug coverage (Medicare Part D), will Americans be ready?

Under the Medicare Modernization Act, Americans age 65 and older will be asked to choose whether or not to participate in Part D coverage during an open enrollment period starting in November. Life and health insurer Bankers Life and Casualty Company wants to help prepare seniors to make an appropriate choice.

The Chicago-based company is offering a free informational pamphlet discussing Medicare Part D. The pamphlet explains what Part D is, premiums, co-payments, deductibles, how to enroll and other information on the voluntary program.

The booklet is available by calling 1-800-664-4466. The information is intended to help seniors make informed choices about prescription drug coverage. Callers may receive a follow up call by a Bankers agent.
