TOWN OF ARLINGTON RETIREES-
IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT YOUR PRESCRIPTION
DRUG COVERAGE AND MEDICARE
You may have heard about Medicare’s new prescription drug coverage, and wondered how it would affect you. Starting January 1, 2006, prescription drug coverage will be available to everyone with Medicare through Medicare prescription drug plans. All Medicare prescription drug plans will provide at least a standard level of coverage set by Medicare. Some plans might also offer more coverage for a higher monthly premium.
Because your existing coverage is on average at least as good as standard Medicare prescription drug coverage, you can keep this coverage and not pay extra if you later decide to enroll in Medicare coverage. We strongly recommend that you stay with your current Town of Arlington plan.
