The state is ending this year its Illinois Cares Rx program, which covered some prescription drug costs for thousands of senior citizens.

Nora Piedra said she recently retired and has many things she is concerned about. Insurance coverage is one of them as well.
"I've come out here and I've seen different insurances that you can get yourself into because I think it's important once you get up to retirement age you know what kinds of things we're eligible for," she said.
Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home is in its fifth year of hosting the expo.
Many members of the health and medical community were available to answer questions and discuss options.
