Local 211 service adds Medicare information

The local 211 information service has added a new way to connect clients to available services by becoming an enrollment center for clients needing assistance with Medicare costs.

The agency’s community engagement navigator will assess a client’s eligibility and help fill out paperwork for a client to receive assistance with their Medicare premiums, deductible, co-pays and prescription drug costs.

Clients may dial 211 or 812-376-6666 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for help and information.
