FARGO – The North Dakota Insurance Department’s State Health Insurance Counseling Program staff will host a free Medicare Part D enrollment event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Doublewood Inn, 3333 13th Ave. S.

The annual enrollment period for Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage is Oct. 15 to Dec. 7.

Attendees who received a yellow drug retrieval card should bring it to the event for expedited services. Consumers should also bring a list of medications, including dosages and frequencies.

The enrollment period for the new federal health insurance marketplace began Oct. 1 but is unrelated to the Part D enrollment period.

Eligible North Dakotans unable to attend an annual enrollment event can also receive assistance in the following ways:

• Call 2-1-1 by Nov. 22 from anywhere in North Dakota. Callers should have their medication information ready, and the top three plan choices will be mailed.

• Visit www.medicare.gov and enter information in the Plan Finder tool on the homepage.

For more information, call (888) 575-6611 or visit www.nd.gov/ndins.
