Monday Nov 24, 2008 ( -- It's time for seniors to sign up for 2009 prescription drug coverage through Medicare. The sign up period is between Nov. 15 and Dec 31, according to Los Angeles Times.


Those turning 65 in 2009 may sign up any day between three months before and three months after their birthdays. The Dec 31 deadline does not affect their enrollment, the newspaper says.


Because there are big changes in coverage, seniors are advised to consider carefully about their options in terms of premiums, drug prices, deductibles, co-pays and the drugs covered in optional plans.


Drug converge program known as Medicare Part D was launched in 2006 to help people ages   60 or older who have no other prescription drug insurance and for younger people who receive social security benefits.


Those who do not sign up will be automatically enrolled in the plan you had last year if you were enrolled in a plan.
