In partnership with the USC Emeriti Center the USC School of Pharmacy hosted 62 individual appointments with PharmD students to assist retirees with choosing a Medicare Part D Plan. By switching plans, there was a total savings of $47,835!
Thank you goes to Professor Brad Williams and his expert faculty and PharmD students.
“We saw a total of 62 retirees; 34 changed plans, and we helped three with their initial enrollment. By switching plans, there was a total savings of $47,835; the average savings was $1,406. The largest savings for a single retiree was $12,000.
It was another very successful year! As usual, it was a great learning experience for our students, all of whom enjoyed the opportunity to work with some of our retirees.

They answered questions about Medicare or even about personal medications. Enrollment period started October 15, 2017 and ends on December 7, 2017.
Each appointment was an hour long.
