"Welcome to Medicare" Seminar Offered in Jefferson on May 6

by -

Since the “Welcome to Medicare” seminars held in 2013 were so popular, Greene County Medical Center is hosting these again in 2014. One has now been scheduled for Tuesday, May 6. 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 seminar offered by Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) counselors, and will be held on Tuesday, May 6, from 6-8 p.m. The seminar will be held in the medical center cafeteria. Please call Mary Ann Wright at 515-386-2114 to register.

“The two seminars we held in 2013 were very well attended,” says 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.
