Congressman Lipinski Joins Local Mayors in Hosting Medicare Prescription Seminar

 
CHICAGO, IL - U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3rd) will host three Medicare Prescription Drug Seminars in the next two weeks to assist seniors in enrolling in the new program.

"I invite my constituents to come to these seminars and ask questions and discuss the Medicare drug plan," Congressman Lipinski said. "No one should feel pressured into making a bad decision about enrolling in this program. Given the current confusion, it is imperative we allow beneficiaries to take their time, check their facts, and know their options without being rushed to choose."

At 10 a.m. on Wednesday December 28th, the Congressman and his staff will join Oak Lawn Mayor Dave Heilmann and experts on the new drug program in providing assistance in registering at the Oak Lawn Senior Center, 5330 W. 95th Street.

At Noon on Wednesday December 28th, Rep. Lipinski will join Hometown Mayor Donald Roberton in assisting seniors applying for the program at Hometown City Hall, 4331 Southwest Highway.   

At 10 a.m., Tuesday January 3rd the Congressman's staff will be at the Bedford Park Library, 6721 W. 65th Place, with Village President David Brady to assist seniors in enrolling.
