SHINE: Thanks to Healthcare Reform, the Medicare prescription drug plan “donut hole” or coverage gap will gradually be closed. This year, anyone who reaches the “donut hole” will automatically receive a one-time $250 rebate check. You don’t need to do anything! A check will be sent to you automatically. The checks will be sent out quarterly. The first group of checks will be sent in June to those who reached the “donut hole” by the end of March. Call your senior center and ask for an appointment with a Certified SHINE Counselor. You can also reach a SHINE Counselor by telephone. Call 1-800-AGE-INFO (1-800-243-4636), then press or say 3. Once you get the SHINE answering machine, leave your name and number. A SHINE Counselor will call you back as soon as possible.
