Enrollment for Medicare's new prescription drug benefits start Tuesday and to help recipients determine which policy is best for them an informational meeting was held Monday to help clear up any confusion. Hundreds of people filled the gymnasium at Colorado West Regional Mental Health Facility to have questions and concerns about the new policy addressed.

Enrollment starts Tuesdday, but people can register until May of next year. In Colorado there are 17 policies for people to choose from, which is causing some confusion.

Beginning January 1st everyone with Medicare, regardless of income, health status or prescription drug usage will have access to the new coverage.
