Time ticking to get temporary Medicare money

Albany- Seniors can still get a break on their drug costs, but time is running out to get a temporary Medicare prescription card.

You have to qualify for the program according to your income. If you're eligible, you can still get a card worth $450 dollars if you get it by June 30th. After that date, the value of the card drops to $300 and finally to $150.

"All they need to do is call Georgia Cares," said Debbie Blanton, assistant director of SOWEGA Council on Aging. "We'll send them the form. We can do everything on-line which makes it much quicker."

To reach someone with the Georgia Cares program, contact the Southwest Georgia Council on Aging.
