Thomasville, Georgia-- The new Medicare prescription drug plans are a little more clear for people in the Rose City.

Congressman Sanford Bishop stopped in Thomasville Wednesday morning along with a Medicare information team. A forum provided senior citizens with an overview of the new plans. They have to choose from eighty the one best tailored to their needs.

Bishop says that would be extremely confusing for seniors without today's forum. "We want to try to assist our seniors in their communities so that they are able to work through it, take advantage of this opportunity," says the congressman.

The information team will also travel to Cairo, Bainbridge, and Columbus. Enrollment for the plans ends in May of next year.
