Welcome to Medicare Seminar offered in Mount Pleasant

Written by Theresa Rose on May 16, 2018

Are you going to be eligible for Medicare in the near future? Have you been on Medicare for a while and want to better understand what it offers? Do you have a family member you help with Medicare issues?


“Welcome to Medicare” is for you!  This two hour seminar is being offered by Sally Fager and Liz Wasson, SHIIP counselors sponsored by Henry County Health Center.  It will be held Tuesday, June 12, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm in the Health Education Center at HCHC.


“The SHIIP program’s Welcome to Medicare orientation meeting was very informative,” said Jane Lauer, a recent participant.  “A SHIIP volunteer met with me individually a few weeks later and helped me better understand how Medicare would work in my case.  I encourage all retirees to take advantage of this program.”


“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. To register for the seminar, or for more information or questions, call 319-385-6774.  Registration is needed by June 3, and is limited to 30.  If you receive an automated message, be sure to leave your name and phone number and say you want to register for “Welcome to Medicare.”
