Joint effort to help seniors with Medicare Part D.
The state's ServiceLink Resource Centers will merge with Health Insurance Counseling, Education and Assistance Services. There are 12 ServiceLink centers in the state where residents can get confidential help.
Health and Human Services Commissioner John Stephen said that the goal is to make sure everyone eligible for the federal program has a chance to find the best plan.
Medicare Part D's open enrollment period ends Dec. 31. The period allows seniors to change prescription drug plans as the number of plans for New Hampshire has increased from 42 to 53, and many of the medications on each plan are changing.
