Albany- A town hall meeting this week will hope to answer questions over the Medicare prescription drug changes. Starting Tuesday, qualified Georgia residents can begin to register for the new Medicare, Medicaid Prescription Drug Plans.

Those on Medicare and Medicaid must enroll by the end of the year or face being placed in a program that may not cover their needs.

"It's really based on the drugs their taking. So, if they choose a plan that doesn't pay for their drugs they could wind up paying a monthly premium for a year," said Kathy Jenkins, Georgia Cares.

The forum will be held Monday, November 14 at the Albany Senior Center at 10:30 a.m. You may want to bring a list of the prescription drugs you take and the name of your local pharmacy.
