TV Program on Medicare Changes

Greetings. For those that have access to CNBC on Cable or Satellite, and who have Medicare or a related program, you might want to pay attention to this upcoming TV show. Here are the details. I received this from an email list I'm on. Please excuse any formatting errors.

I wanted to let you guys know about a TV program you should watch this
weekend. It is sponsored by CMS. The program is titled "Medicare Rx: A
Conversation" and will air on CNBC from 5:30 - 6:00 PM Central Time on
Saturday, November 19th and again on Sunday, November 20th.

If you have Medicare, you should make an informed choice on whether to
enroll in a plan of your choice even if you are on Medicaid or the state
pays your premiums (QMB, SLMB) or if you have been approved for the LIS
Subsidy. If you do not enroll, CMS will place you randomly in a plan which
may not be the best one for your needs! If you have drug coverage under
private policies, check with your insurance plan to find out if you should
enroll in Part D.
For assistance in picking a plan, Medicare beneficiaries can call:
List of 3 items

* Texas SHIP at 800-633-4227
* Capital Area Agency on Aging (AAA) at 512-916-6062 or toll-free at
list end
