Valdosta - A Georgia congressman is helping senior citizens with their prescription drug plans.

First District Congressman Jack Kingston of Savannah met with seniors in Valdosta Wednesday to talk about the Medicare D program. Kingston, his staff, and Medicare representatives tried to clear up confusion about changes in the plan and helped many seniors sign up for the coverage they need.

The congressman represents 29 counties in Georgia and says no matter where he goes, this is the number one concern of his constituents.  "This should not be like the IRS, it shouldn't be mass confusion but that's what it is, so we're trying to take them from that point to a point where everybody feels more comfortable," said Kingston.

Medicare recipients have until May 15th to sign up for the prescription coverage without a penalty. For every month you delay after that, you'll have to pay a one percent penalty on your premium.
