Local Events

Every year during Medicare Open Enrollment from October 15th to December 7th, we hold events with pharmacy student volunteers throughout the Auburn-Opelika, Mobile, and surrounding areas in Alabama.  The purpose of these events is to help people select the Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage Plan that best fits their needs.

All Medicare enrollees and their caregivers are welcome

Please contact us to make an appointment at 1-800-270-7635 or 334-749-5264
