Annapolis, MD (March 17, 2006) - Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens announced today, the Anne Arundel County Medicare Part D Assistance Center has helped 1,250 area residents since opening January 27, 2006.
"I am proud to know that we have been able to reach out and help our seniors and disabled residents in the County," said Ms. Owens.
The County Executive opened the new Assistance Center, located at 2666 Riva Road, Suite 110; after seeing the urgent need for understanding the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.
