CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- The baby boomers are no longer babies, in fact they began entering the medicare system last year.
About 10,000 people turn 65 everyday and it's putting a strain on the healthcare system.
Several agencies help these baby boomers navigate the Medicare system and manage chronic illness through special needs plans.
"An average member with Care Improvement Plus is 76-years-old and is on from an average of 8 to 11 different medications so we're dealing with a very sick population and we are helping them control their cost," Community Relations Manager Lauren Montrastelle with Care Improvement Plus said.
