Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) counselors at Greene County Medical Center are hosting a “Welcome to Medicare” seminar on Tuesday, May 17, from 6-8 p.m.  If you are going to be eligible for Medicare in the near future, or have been on Medicare for awhile and want to better understand what it offers, this seminar is for you.  Those who help family members who are on Medicare may also want to attend. 

“Welcome to Medicare” is a two-hour, free seminar, and will be held in the medical center’s education classroom.  Please call Mary Ann Wright at 515-386-2114 by Tuesday, May 10, to register.

“We’re excited to offer this free seminar to the community,” said Wright. “Medicare is such an important program and understanding what it offers helps assure that anyone eligible gets the health benefits they deserve.”

“Welcome to Medicare” will cover Medicare Part A and Part B benefits, the prescription drug benefit (Part D), Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare supplement insurance.
