While much of the attention has been on the Affordable Care Act for the past month, state officials want you to know Medicare Part D enrollment is underway.  Enrollment began a few weeks ago, and anyone eligible for Medicare benefits can sign up or change programs now through December 7.  

The Illinois Department of Insurance's Mark Terry says there are no big changes to the program this year.

Terry comments

The toll free number at the Illinois Department of Insurance is 1-800-548-9034, if you have questions about your plan.  For a list of the changes to the plan, or log on to www.insurance.illinois.gov
