Media Advisory: Senior ‘Town Hall’ Meeting – Medicare D Prescription Drug Program

WOODBRIDGE – Senator Joseph F. Vitale will hold a Senior Town Hall Meeting on Monday, November 7th to inform seniors how the new Medicare D prescription drug benefit will affect their PAAD and Senior Gold benefits.

While Medicare D will provide the added benefit of prescription drug coverage for all

New Jersey seniors, the information and educational outreach on the part of the Federal Government has been fragmented and very confusing. This meeting will clear the air for seniors, answer their questions and provide the information that will help them make the best decisions. Seniors will be able to begin selecting their coverage plans on November 15th, making this meeting both informative and timely.

The Senator will be joined by Mayor Frank G. Pelzman of Woodbridge and Susan Way of the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Senior Benefits and Utilization Management.

The Town Hall Meeting will be held at 9:30 AM at the Cameo Banquet Hall located at 800 Rahway Avenue in Woodbridge.
