Due to COVID 19, procedures have changed for Open Enrollment for 2020. If you need help comparing and/or changing your Part D Drug Plan, please see the Pre- Enrollment form linked below. You may complete the form on your own and fax it or drop it off at one of the two Senior Centers. You may also call one of the two Senior Centers and ask for SHIIP and a staff member to help you complete the form over the phone. Complete directions are on the top of the form. Once the form has been completed and received at the Senior Centers, a SHIIP volunteer counselor will call you and schedule your phone session. If you prefer an in person counseling session, the COA will help you connect with trained SHIIP counselors at Piedmont Health in Siler City or Moncure.
