After hosting The Tonight Show for more than two decades, Jay Leno has earned the right to take it easy, but then he wouldn’t be known as “the hardest working man in show business.” 
Join us for the ONLY performance scheduled in our area.

MyMedicare.gov
Have you signed up to use MyMedicare.gov?  If not, you may want to consider doing so.  Through this web site you can access your personal Medicare related information.  For example, you can:
 
check to see the status of your new Medicare Card.  Look for the message, “your card is in the mail”
view information about your Medicare Part D Prescription Drug plan or your Medicare Advantage Plan enrollment.
view a list of your prescription drugs.
view your Medicare Summary Notice and learn about the status of your Part B deductible, whether it has been met or not.
Plus, just as with signing up for a MySocialSecurity account, when you sign up for a MyMedicare.gov account, it keeps scammers from using your information to sign up for an account.
If you would like help signing up for a MyMedicare.gov or a MySocialSecurity account, we can help you.  Just call us at Rock River Center, 815-732-3252, or 800-541-5479.
